Notes & Reviews:
To celebrate Jean Sibelius's 150th birthday, Decca will re-issue conductor Lorin Maazel's symphony cycle with the Vienne Philharmonic which was recorded in the 1960s. Decca and Abbey Road Studios have gone back to the original tapes to make a definitive transfer and present the re-mastered recordings on 4 CDs and a High Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-ray disc - an unprecedented opportunity to hear these legendary recordings in the best possible audio quality.
