Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Sibelius began his Seventh Symphony sometime around 1918. It was his last symphony and one of his last works. In 1918 he wrote that the Seventh would deal with the "joy of life and vitality with appassionato sections". The Seventh does have moments of joy and appassionato. Tapiola is Sibelius's last work. Its portrayal of a forest spirit usually produces performances of mystery that may touch on impressionism. This is another fresh performance that deserves attention. The reading of the Sixth Symphony follows a similar conceptual approach. Finnish orchestras may have Sibelius in their bones. The sound is excellent. There is a lot to enjoy here, particularly if you are looking for something new and fresh in Sibelius interpretation.
