Sibelius: Tone Poems
Sibelius: Tone Poems (Philips 476 281-7)
SKU: 03103
AU $8.95

Label: Philips Cat. No.: 476 281-7 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

This CD has received a 10/10 review on
Sir Colin Davis's Sibelius is well-known and regarded, but surprisingly some key Sibelius recordings of his with the Boston Symphony have never made it to CD. These include Pohjola's Daughter and En saga. His Karelia Suite is rare at best. Together with Valse Triste and Tapiola, these make up an excellent disc of Sibelius Tone Poems.

"the perspectives are close, but thrillingly so, revealing every iota of color and textural interest. Just listen to the detail that Davis conjures in the big central development of Pohjola's Daughter, solo winds and harp especially, or to the menacing brass crescendos in En Saga (with the bass drum effectively but naturally in balance). These are magnificent performances all, the conductor and players totally inside the composer's special idiom. Even the relaxed but buoyant Karelia Suite has a very special "fairy tale" atmosphere that's entirely appropriate, full of freshness and innocent fun. In short, what you have here are Sibelius' three greatest tone poems (En Saga, Pohjola's Daughter, and Tapiola) in outstanding interpretations and great sound, along with two popular favorites done every bit as well. Need I say more?" - 10/10
