Notes & Reviews:

For the first time, Sir Colin Davis’ acclaimed LSO Live recordings of Sibelius’s symphonies appear together as a four disc set. Sibelius is one of the composer’s with whom Davis has been most closely associated throughout his career. His LSO Live recordings of the symphonies were recorded between 2002 and 2008 and have collected numerous awards. All seven symphonies, plus Sibelius’s early symphonic poem Kullervo, are packaged on 4 CDs in a custom box together with extensive notes and the complete text for Kullervo. SACD versions of the recordings remain available as single discs.

bbc.co.uk - Andrew Mellor
The mature Davis has a way with the music's architecture like few other conductors. The pace of the expansive Second and Fifth Symphonies is masterful. Combined with the innate warmth and pretty much faultless playing of the LSO, it makes for some of the most readily satisfying performances available.
