I agree with Mr MacIntyre's comments, particularly in regard to there being too much of a conductor's presence: slow tempi can add weight to an interpretation and emphasise the drama of the music. Here, in no 1 Rattle takes things so slowly at times as to render the music almost incoherent.
That said, the set overall is weighty and noble, and no 7 is thrilling, putting me in mind of of the wonderful Paul Kletzki recordings of, if memory serves, the 1950's.

Format: Audio CD
These recordings came out of a performed symphony cycle at a time when Sibelius had been a little bit in the background in British concert halls. The CBSO were beginning to be the rich and responsive instrument that they later became under Rattle's directorship and there was an excitement about any project that they undertook. I went to the series of Sibelius concerts they geve over a Bank Holiday weekend at Warwick Arts Centre (all this was pre Birmingham's Symphony Hall) and it was a bracing experience.

Broadly speaking the interpretations from Symphony 3 onward are all very fine indeed, but the first two symphonies are a little spoiled by too much intervention from the conductor. Another reviewer has mentioned the special quality of Symphony 3 and I concur with this. I would also add that the even lesser played Symphony 6 receives a very noble performance in this set. Symphonies 5 and 7 are noble and Symphony 4 is very well judged - indeed slightly warmer in concept than many rivals of the period.

I am sure that Rattle would do things differently now, and with the Berlin Philharmonic. This does not necessarily mean "better", of course, for even in the first two symphonies there is much cogent thought behind the music making and, as I have said, symphonies 3 - 7 are amongst the best available.

Format: Audio CD
Already a classic collection of the Symphonies, the Concerto, and other works, this version adds a different recording of Symphony 5 as a bonus: well worth a hearing. It's also enhanced with interesting tidbits for PC, apparently, but I haven't been able to access them. Not too fussed: Rattle's right on the nose with the CBSO and the Phil. This contains the best version of the rarely recorded 3rd Symphony I've yet heard.
