 Unusual Assortment Satisfies February 21, 2014 By bess holloway (Boulder, CO) See All My Reviews "These recordings date from the early 1980s. They have been nicely remastered for this disc. I've read that Sibelius considered Karajan to be his best interpreter, something to keep in mind while listening to these works. There's a lot of important music here for a very reasonable price."
