Notes & Reviews:

While the beloved 'Valse triste' and 'Scene with Cranes' from 'Kuolema' are virtually signature tunes for the great Finnish composer, much of Sibelius' orchestral and theatrical music remains undeservedly less familiar. From the incidental music for the play 'Belshazzar's Feast' Sibelius drew four richly scored orientalist movements. The tone poems 'Pan and Echo' and 'Night Ride and Sunrise' respectively evoke the world of ancient myth and a nocturnal journey towards a Nordic dawn. A lilting waltz dances at the heart of the impressionistic 'The Dryad', while castanets enliven the light-hearted mood of the 'Tanz-Intermezzo, Op. 45 No. 2'.
