Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Ken together, this is a comprehensively original cycle, revealing without being controversial, direct in utterance yet precisely calculated. It is certainly, in my view, the finest survey of the past three decades...Splendid sound makes this indispensable for all devotees of Sibelius.

The Arts Desk
Vänskä's accounts of the published symphonies are regarded by many as definitive. He's at his best in Sibelius's sparer, sparser moments - the Fourth and Sixth are sleek and otherworldly, and the leaner Lahti sound makes the First and Second sound more radical and forward-looking. Nice artwork and informative notes too.
