Product Description

A beautifully packaged Blu-Ray box edition commemorating Sibelius 150th birthday with a spotlight on his seminal symphony cycle that are among the canonical works of the 20th century. With the musical evocations of his Finnish landscape Sibelius symphonic works are known for their depth and technical challenge and continue to provide challenge for conductors and performers and delight to audiences. Sibelius likened his symphonies to declarations of faith, and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra led by Hannu Lintu deliver mightily towards this mission with this comprehensive collection. For the first time, the entirety of Sibeliuss symphonies are available in audio-visual format with the outstanding addition of documentaries that precede each symphony narrated by Lintu providing context and information. The short film series Sort Of Sibelius! is also included and it introduces the man behind the music with narration provided by one of the more scintillating composers working today, Sibelius compatriot Kaija Saariaho.

Review

"There is something riveting and unshakeably secure about this performance, the strings and brass of the Finnish RSO magnificent at that first movement's final, excitable ascent." --Andrew Mellor, Gramophone, January 2016
