Notes & Reviews:

Following their recording of Symphonies 1& 3, this release marks the second disc of Sibelius works from the award-winning Halle Orchestra under Sir Mark Elder. The disc includes the long-awaited recording of Elder's interpretation of the ever-popular Symphony No. 2, a work closely associated with the Halle, who gave the British premiere in 1905. It is coupled with the dramatic Pohjola's Daughter, an orchestral showpiece featuring the Halle at the height of its powers, and the lesser-known but deeply evocative musical portrait of the sea entitled The Oceanides. Together, those performances perfectly illustrate the renaissance that has been achieved at the Halle under Sir Mark Elder.

Arresting ... elaborate [and] superbly integrated.
