 Reliving an introduction to Sibelius February 3, 2014 By Leonard B. (Sarasota, FL) See All My Reviews "I was surveying some of Sibelius' musical recordings when I came across the name Anthony Collins. In high school, more than fifty years ago, I bought my first Sibelius LP of Collins conducting the London Symphony Orchestra of the late Finnish composer's First Symphony. I believe I paid $1.99 for the vintage Richmond label recording by Collins, my first of the wonderful Nordic composer. There are so many wonderful transcriptions of the symphony, but Collins' work here will always be close to my heart. And by the way, if you ever have an opportunity to visit Sibelius' house in southern Finland, by all means go on a tour and visit as well both he and his wife's graves in the backyard of their house in the forest."
