3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Bruce TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 29 Dec 2012
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I heard this version of the 7th symphony on Radio 3 and was incredibly impressed. So much so, that I had to own the CD and bought this set.

Having done some research, these performances do rank highly among modern recordings of Sibelius's orchestral works and this combination of performers do seem particularly suited to this music.

The recorded sound is superb and the wide dynamic range adds to the intensity of the performances. This music is from Sibelius's mature period, when he had found his own voice and become one of the greatest symphonists ever - possibly the greatest of the 20th Century.

The tone poems and later symphonies inhabit a sound world that will now always be associated with Finland - a bare sound at times, yet rich in drama and the dark seriousness we expect of a scandinavian artist. It evokes the winter landscapes and dramatic weather of a rugged natural beauty.

This 2 CD set has 2 hours of music and is a bargain introduction to the best of Sibelius at the same price of most single CDs. If you have never heard this music - I have no hesitation in recommending this as the place to start.

Berglund's interpretation especially of the absurdly underperformed 6th Symphony is a revelation.

Excellent quality double cd set of Sibelius's great ocean and mountain range symphonies. Passionate performances all through from the Helsinki Philharmonic. A good compilation at an attractive price.

Ok Sibelius was Finnish, but I believe it was first performed in Sweden. Another fine purchasing idea from radio 3. Excellent clean recording sound from a high quality conductor/orchestra, who are clearly sympathetic to the music. I have had much pleasure from the cd already

I purchased this CD on behalf of my mother as a Christmas present for my son who's at Uni, and he has been delighted with it. Would recommend as a worthwhile purchase.
