Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, February 2015
Superlative performances by the finest Sibelius conductor around - exciting, searching, reflective, and excellently played.

Ondine takes an early step to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Jean Sibelius’ birth in 2015 by issuing this special release - Jean Sibelius: The Essential Orchestral Favorites. Expanded to two CDs from its original single CD 2003 release, the new package includes the only surviving recording of Sibelius conducting his own music: the Andante festivo recorded on the New Year’s Day 1939, as well as the Violin Concerto and the 2nd Symphony, arguably his two most favored masterpieces. The 52-page photo album includes several unreleased photos of Sibelius by the photographer Bertil Dahlgren.
