Sibelius: Symphonies Nos. 2 & 5 (BIS: BISSACD1986)

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
BIS present a new recording of Jean Sibelius's Symphonies 2 and 5 from the Minnesota Orchestra and their Finnish conductor Osmo Vanska. Beginning in the early 1990s, seminal recordings with Vanska and the Lahti Symphony Orchestra of tone poems and the seven symphonies stood at the forefront of a new interpretative approach to the composer's music.

Vanska's recordings of Sibelius over the past 20 years form the backbone of the label's newly completed Sibelius Edition. This disc with the Minnesota Orchestra follows an acclaimed cycle of Beethoven's symphonies, and most recently a recording of Bruckner's Fourth ('Romantic') Symphony.

The Sibelius expert Robert Layton presents the Second Symphony as 'the symphony by which many music lovers find their way to Sibelius', and quotes the composer in a comment about symphonic form: 'a river with innumerable tributaries feeding it before it broadens majestically and flows into the sea'.
