2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By I. Giles HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 24 Dec. 2012
Format: Audio CD
Colin Davis is here revisiting his Sibelius recordings made earlier with the Boston SO. These new performances received generally glowing reviews as performances in the press and then when those performances later appeared in their touched up disc versions as here. There were considerable reservations made about the recordings however with the Barbican sound stage being described as dry and lacking in depth. Additionally complaints were raised about the conductors vocalisations during the performances.

What is quite noticeable is that these same performances have not been so well received in the States with much the same comments being made about the recordings and vocalisations but also, interestingly, the performances themselves have been considered unexciting at best especially when compared to the Boston set.

Having owned both sets of the Davis performances I would agree that the recorded sound in this case is cause for comment and some concern. There is definitely a case to be made about the dryness of this disc and also the vocalisations. It should be noted that it may be that my response to the dry sound is not as critical as those who own the SACD version. Mine is the alternative stereo version and this may not show the deficiencies quite so much as the SACD version. This disc is not the worst of the LSO set though and is therefore OK but not good. The vocalisations could be more of a problem once they have been identified.

As regards the performances I personally enjoyed them finding the speed relationships throughout the two works to be very convincing and that both works made a convincing pair of interpretations.

If you love Sibelius, you cannot go wrong with this disc - I cannot stop playing it. The LSO under Colin Davis play with such white hot conviction that I hardly leave the edge of my seat. I have many interpretations of these works in my collection - Rattle, Blomstedt, Burglund and earlier Davis recordings, but none match either of these performances. Live music making of the very best, thankfully caught on disc for everyone to enjoy. The occasional small grunt and groan from Sir Colin on the podium only seems to add to the sense of occasion.
Excuse me, I must go and play it again

Sir Colin Davis and the LSO have consistently impressed me with their LSO Live series of the Sibelius symphonies. There is something especially Scandinavian about the way Davis looks at these symphonies. I can almost see the dark, overcast forests of Sibelius' Finland. Davis does more than just create a Finnish atmosphere, however, which is what separates it from what I heard of his RCA set, also with the LSO. He seems to constantly be involved, and his love for the music is evident. While Davis' approach may not be everyone's taste, he has arrived at a unique way of performing these symphonies that is undeniably unique and full of personality.

Starting things off on this disc we hear the Sibelius 3rd. A work that some conductors have seemed afraid to perform, it is wonderfully cheerful for Sibelius. (Karajan, as much of a Sibelius fan as he was, never included this in his sets of the symphonies.) Reviewers have complained that Davis seems to try to make this piece more sober than is necessary. This isn't a crazy complaint, as you could add more fun and "let loose" more than Davis did without losing the magic of the piece. Still, I found myself sympathetic with Davis; the beauty of the orchestral sound combined with the excitement Davis infuses into the work sends me into raves. The soberness Davis never lets leave doesn't seem to hinder the enjoyment of the piece. Davis lets his orchestra dig into the music, he just always makes sure that the end result will leave you thinking, not just excited. For me, this symphony can handle this kind of approach. I'll leave the final decision up to you.

I'll agree with John Grabowski (on the US Amazon)that the 7th symphony is almost too good to be played. Davis certainly doesn't bring this piece to its full potential.

I was really excited about receiving this CD having heard a very favourable appraisal on R3's Building A Library.
Unfortunately my enjoyment has been completely shattered by the occasional background noises .....which sound like glooping water or men muttering. One of your reviewers has enlightened me by pointing out that it is the conductor singing along! It's small consolation to know what these extraneous and hugely distracting sounds actually are as the disc as a whole is spoilt for me. The 3rd movement of the 3rd symphony is "free of noises" and what a great performance it is.
Am I the only one out there to be so irritated in this way? (by the way I remember similar noises from Nigel Kennedy about 20 years ago on a recording,coincidentally,of Sibelius's Violin Concerto)

Format: Audio CD
I was at the Barbican performance of the third captured on this disc. At the time I was blown away, never had I heard Sibelius sound so good, and finally an interpretation of the 3rd where the last movement was made to fit. Memories of the concert include the plaintiff clarinet calls in the 2nd movement, the delicacy, the detail which suddenly sprang out of the texture and the vitality of the LSO. So a transfixing account of this tricky work, for my money the best on record. The 7th lacks a little in intensity, the grinding disonances and passionate ardour that Beecham for example brought to the work.
The sound is good Barbican, quite detailed, a touch dry. The LSO earn their righful place as a world class orchestra in partnership with one of the greatest interpreters of Sibelius.
