Notes & Reviews:
Beginning in mid-1980s, Leonard Bernstein and the Vienna Philharmonic began re-recording the complete cycle of Sibelius symphonies. Bernstein's death in 1990 ended the planned project with Symphonies Nos. 1, 2, 5 and 7 completed. Recorded live in the intimately sized Vienna's Musikverein, and brilliantly filmed to allow maximum visibility of the orchestra and soloists. An inspired Bernstein conducts the then still all male Vienna Philharmonic in these singular interpretations of Sibelius' intricately visceral works. Released for the first time on Blu-ray.Notes & Reviews:
