5.0 out of 5 stars Spine tinglingly stirring and incredibly moving, 29 Dec. 2011

This review is from: Sibelius: Symphonies Nos. 1-7, Kullervo (MP3 Download)
I've been in love with the music of Sibelius since I was very young, which is more years than I am prepared to admit.

My music collection has been full of it with performances of varying quality. Somehow the music always transcended the quality of the recording or the musicians performing it - I thought. But this year, as a result of the the BBC's Symphony series, I replayed one of my recordings and changed my mind. It was awful and had to be replaced.

I was looking for a complete series and as soon as I saw Colin Davis' name I knew this had to be the one. What a great choice. I bought MP3 as I play music increasingly on my PC and I haven't stopped playing it since.

These performances have raised the hair on the back of my neck, brought tears to my eyes and lifted my spirit. They have reinforced my love of Sibelius and shown me the difference between an average and a truly great interpretation.

Whether or not you already love Sibelius, and whether or not it has been recommended on CD Review, I don't care. I recommend this recording unreservedly and I know you'll love it.
