Sibelius:Belshazzar'S Feast



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Alongside the great symphonies and tone poems, music for the theatre played an important role in Sibelius's development. From exquisite nocturnal tranquillity to the macabre 'Dance of Life', Belshazzar's Feast is an exotic tale of seduction and tragedy to which Sibelius responded with some of his most hauntingly beautiful writing for the stage. The early Menuetto and lively Cortège were considered good enough by the composer to be recycled for further stage productions, while the Overture in E and Scène de Ballet started life as Sibelius's first attempt at composing a symphony.

This is the second of a six-volume set of orchestral works by Jean Sibelius which explores his prolific but infrequently-heard work beyond the core oeuvre of the symphonies, violin concerto and tone poems. Conductor Leif Segerstam has been acclaimed for his many recordings with numerous orchestras, and was awarded the annual Finnish State Prize for Music in 2004 and in 2005 the highly esteemed Sibelius Medal. His recordings for Naxos include a "skilfully and sweepingly paced" Wagner's Tristan und Isolde (Classic FM on 8.660152-54), his conducting of Alban Berg's Wozzeck regarded as "a giant-killer" (Gramophone on 8.660076-77). The Turku Philharmonic is a platinum record-making and award winning orchestra, and we are confident that the sheer quality of this new series will guarantee wide interest in the relatively neglected works of Finland's greatest and most influential composer.
