Notes & Reviews:

"Davis's new Sibelius cycle has so many virtues and so few weaknesses, it makes a whole swarm of recent cycles by Segerstam, Saraste, Jansons, and Maazel nearly superfluous...Davis always delivers a compelling organic unity in each of the Sibelius symphonies. His signature is a powerful maturity of expression that eludes conductors who only emphasize salient features...The Londoners play these works with commitment and sensitivity..." -Haldeman, ARG
