Notes and Editorial Reviews

The tragic and tensely Sibelian First Symphony was recorded by the composer conducting the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in 1979... You can hear that Bournemouth EMI recording if you can find CDM 7 64044 2. Rather like the composer’s Lyrita recording of his Fourth Symphony it is taken at a slow pace (39:08) as if the composer was relishing the memories, joys and pains reflected in each bar. For me that recording is something special and it’s the version by which I came to know the piece.
