Beautifully crafted 5th,
This review is from: Sibelius: Symphony No.5/Violin Concerto (Audio CD)
This is a beautifully crafted account of Sibelius' 5th symphony, performed with masterful control of subtlety and detail, while overall sense of drama biulds up and culminates in majestic climax. CBSO's brass sound is glorious.
Kennedy's deeply felt rendition of the violin concerto is equally impressive, if it lacks extra intensity of Oistrakh or Mullova.
Beautiful & expansive DDD recording.
