...a sixty-word review by Colin Anderson
A brooding, atmospheric Pohjolas Daughter; a veiled Valse triste; a Karelia Suite given time to parade, narrate and stroll; an En saga with a light scenic touch; a visceral Tapiola. Some regard Sibeliuss symphonic poems as greater than his symphonies; Colin Davis is a renowned Sibelian; the Boston Symphonys Sibelius instincts go back to the days of Koussevitzky. Dont miss!
