4.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Sibelius - on a budget, 11 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sibelius - Finlandia; Karelia Suite (Audio CD)
From music lessons at school, "Finlandia" has always been a favourite of mine for its passionate evocation of the Finnish country and people in a sweeping, dramatic and moving piece.
The "Karelia Suite" makes an excellent companion. Many people know the opening of the suite, the "Intermezzo", very well because it was used as the title theme for the long-running ITV current affairs programme "This Week".
Naxos is is an excellent publisher and its wide-ranging catalogue of cheaply available CDs makes much of classical music available to many who cannot afford the more expensive editions or do not wish to spend a great deal on CDs.
However, cheapness does not mean poor quality; they may not reach the standard of Deutsch Grammophon but they are excellent.
