"I cannot recommend this CD too highly. Few accounts of the fifth symphony are more dramatic" - Denby Richards, Musical Opinion.

"extremely well scrubbed-up recordings ... merits high praise. Highly listenable recordings. [the performances of the symphonies ] are unsentimental yet generate plenty of atmosphere . . . conspiratorial and sweetly pressured tension. Kajanus's Tapiola is even more impressive" - Rob Barnett, MusicWeb.

"the performances [were] endorsed by Sibelius. Thus the recordings are considered by many as being definitive. This issue is of astonishingly high quality, with all trace of surface noise removed . . . This disc is of genuine historical importance. A fascinating release." - Arthur Baker, FRMS Bulletin.

"these are important documents . . . Kajanus's interpretation of the Fifth Symphony is an outstanding aceivement. The remastering is excellent" - Martin Leigh, Classic Record Collector.

"energetic and punchy direction . . . When we hear the rich scores under the baton of Robert Kajanus, we fully realise all that they had. We should mention the excellent work of Andrew Rose of Pristine Audio which is worthy of the highest praise: faultless matching of sides and natural sound, a real pleasure to listen to. So we have a recording on CD which once again indicates the essential cultural role of the disc in the preservation of our most precious musical heritage." - Michel Tibbaut, RTBF.

"[these recordings] positively sing with the spirit of Finland's wide open spaces" - Tom Hall, Culture Magazine.
