Notes & Reviews:

"[Karajan's] glorious account of the Sixth Symphony...remains almost unsurpassed among recent accounts." -The New Penguin Guide. "Karajan's version of Sibelius' Fifth Symphony...strikes me as the ideal realization of Sibelius as a passionate but anti-sensual composer." -Glenn Gould: A Desert Island Discography. May we only add that these are perhaps the finest accounts of these symphonies in the catalog. -H&B

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Coupled with Symphonies Nos 4-7 (including a magnificent No 6), this Tapiola from the mid-1960s remains for many unsurpassed evoking the mood of the Nordic forests.

Glorious, rich tone from the BPO
