 Outstanding Sibelius for Your Collection! August 9, 2015 By Richard F. Buckley (South Park, PA) See All My Reviews "I have been a fan of the music of Sibelius since my earliest days of devotion to classical music. Every time I hear one of his compositions, it leaves me refreshed and inwardly smiling. This two CD set - part 2 of a set of four CD's - is one of the best collections of Sibelius' work ever recorded, as far as I am concerned. It features three of his finest symphonies as well as four of his other outstanding compositions. The Boston Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Sir Colin Davis, is featured on all but one of the selections - the exception being the Violin Concerto which, although quite acceptable, doesn't measure up to the quality of the other pieces, to my way of thinking. As with all of my Philips recordings, the quality of the sound is superb. There are no noticeable high or low volume segments, and the balance is q noticeably superior to other CD's. This set will make a fine addition to your collection. Don't hesitate Buy it now while it is still available. You won't be sorry." Report Abuse
