Notes and Editorial Reviews

The 2nd Symphony, Sibelius' most popular, is featured in this third volume of the series. Together with orchestral gems 'Tapiola' and 'The Swan of Tuonela', the conductor and orchestra show their close, deep connection to the composer as they depict beautiful scenes of nature in the Nordic countries. - Exton
