Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"This is a terrific performance by any standard. Robert Spano is no stranger to the work: he performed it to considerable success during his tenure at the Brooklyn Philharmonic, and his passionate, exciting way with the score has carried over onto this recording. The main difference is that he has a much better orchestra and chorus. Indeed, the singing of the Atlanta Symphony male chorus, nearly 100 strong, is the finest that this work has received. They articulate the Finnish text with amazing clarity, not to mention a big, bold, and rich sonority." -Classics Today (10/10)
