Notes & Reviews:

This new release features Finnish RSO under the baton of Sakari Oramo with Symphonies 5 and 6 by Sergei Prokofiev. Sakari Oramo served as chief conductor of the Finnish RSO from 2003 to 2012. In February 2012, he made his debut with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Observer, 16th September 2012
Oramo invests the expansive opening andante [of the Fifth] and intense, emotional adagio with rare power and authority...[He] guides us through its devastated landscape with clarity and compassion.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2012
Aided by a clean and unfussy recorded acoustic, Oramo and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra bring out the work's remarkable colours and character. In the second movement one senses the Symphony's deliberate hesitations, and those moments where certainties are undermined by a curdled harmony or a baleful brass fanfare.
