Notes & Reviews:

Joshua Bell lights up the stage with this dazzling performance of Tchaikovsky' s Violin Concerto, the centrepiece of the Nobel Prize Concert®in Stockholm in honour of the 2010 Nobel Laureates. Part of the official NobelWeek, this tribute concert opens with music by Beethoven that urgently evokes the spirit of freedom from tyranny. And closing the evening is a glowing account by Sakari Oramo and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic of Sibelius' s monument to orchestral majesty, the titanic Fifth Symphony.

Fanfare
Oramo's and the orchestra's performance of Jean Sibelius's Fifth Symphony, recorded, again, with startling fidelity, conveys a strong sense of the music's elemental power...

Gramophone
The Canzonetta is sweetly delivered and the concluding Allegro vivacissimo dances along pleasingly. The resultant ovation was well deserved, as was that for Beethoven's Leonore No 3, conducted from memory by Oramo and delivered with sincere relish by the players.
