Notes & Reviews:

Recorded live at Helsinki University's Festival Hall on 17 June 1953, this disc is of exceptional interest as Stokowski never recorded an integral set of the Sibelius Symphonies. This concert is a remarkable demonstration of Stokowski's qualities as in interpreter of Sibelius' music giving vital, convincing performances with the Finnish orchestra.
