Notes & Reviews:

This recording includes two much beloved works from Sibelius' early period: the four Lemminkainen Legends and the tone poem En Saga. This is the debut recording of the young Finnish conductor Mikko Franck. Franck leads one of Scandinavia's top orchestras here, where youthful energy and talent are met with utmost professionalism. Ondine's sound is glorious, the loud passages having excellent punch and a resonant bloom.

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
An auspicious recording début, then, from a young artist of clearly prodigious potential.
