Notes and Editorial Reviews

Christian Ferras and Herbert von Karajan are still strong contenders. When it first came out Trevor Harvey thought better of the Ricci/Fjeldstad on Decca (nla) and noted the ugly solo entry at fig. 6 in the first movement, which still sounds unpleasing. However, there is much more to admire than cavil at and I would have thought its claims far from negligible particularly as it offers a classic account of Tapiola and a magnificent Finlandia.

-- Gramophone [10/1988]
