Notes & Reviews:

"Sibelius's Third Symphony is a triumph of the power of suggestion. Mustonen's interpretation views the piece from a distinctly different perspective from many previous account. Right from the outset, his tempi are swift, achieving the dance-like impulsion that some rivals only manage halfway through the opening movement. To couple this with Nielsen's 'Four Temperatments' might seem unusual. Directing from the keyboard, this is a nicely paced account." - Guy Rickards, Gramophone
