4.0 out of 5 stars Sibelius at full speed 9 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a pretty exciting cycle. A magnificent version of the 5th Symphony. The Third is taken at a very fast tempo but I got used to it. The 7th is a little underpowered especially compared with Berglund and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. The best performance is the Pohjola's Daughter. A true masterpiece brilliantly played

4.0 out of 5 stars If you don't have the vinyl - Buy this set 26 Jan 2013
By Warren Schrick - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The only reason I gave a rating of four stars is that I was comparing them to the original vinyl. The vinyl LPs, are somewhat more dynamic, with additional detail.. Based on audiophile grade playback turntable and cartridge. However, not in the "Megabuck" category. If you have the vinyl, you do not need the CD set, except to protect your vinyl for overplay.
Anthony Collins, just seems to have gotten everything right, even to communicating with Sibelius as to the metronome markings. No one else has captured the essence of what, I think, were Sibelius thoughts in his symphonies.

Yes. If you are looking for a definitive reading of the Sibelius symphonies, and are not concerned that is is not the greatest sound (not bad, however). BUY THIS SET!!
