Sir Colin Davis is apparently a real fan of Sibelius. After releasing his complete symphonies with the LSO for RCA in the 90's, he's returned to them once more with the same orchestra, offering us live readings on the LSO Live label. I own both his LSO attempts at the 2nd symphony, so I thought I might write a review comparing the two, especially for those who are trying to decide between the two.

The RCA reading of this symphony was one that took advantage of the rich, deep sound of the LSO. Davis relied heavily on that sound there; it was big and brassy, and full of the rich texture that makes this orchestra famous. But what I missed in that account was a feeling of love for the music. While everything was technically perfect, it often sounded forced and a bit unsympathetic. While the brass shined in superficial brilliance, it often ended up sounding like a lot of exciting noise. All in all, it wasn't bad, and some moments were real special, but overall I found much to be lacking.

This newer LSO Live account fares much better. Perhaps surprisingly, Davis has become more animated and involved with his increased age. There is something about the LSO's dark quality that makes it well suited to Sibelius, a composer whose music is descriptive of the cold, dark forests of his Finland. This quality was strongly apparent in the RCA reading, but it's equally present here. While the climaxes don't have the bite that they had in the RCA account, I hardly mind, as Davis brings much more beauty out here. In fact, part of the problem in the RCA recording was that Davis tended to surround the listener with an almost harsh bigness of sound when you really wanted something more heart touching. Here you get plenty of heart touching material. What's more, the LSO seems to let loose more.

A fine recording of fine music from a fine orchestra under a fine conductor. Not quite up to the recording standard of symphonies 3 & 7 on sacd, which took my breath away, but fine all the same.

What a beautiful recording. It is full of the Sibelian splendour that we expect from Davis. The sound is outstanding from beginning to end. The LSO. No more need be said.
