  1. I had to get this set. I borrowed Sibelius' Fifth Symphony (Leonard Bernstein & NYPO) in and bought it a year later in LP form. The LP got scratched to bits, too much playing, but I still played it, I've still got it, now unplayable. I cannot get this version of the Fifth Symphony anywhere else apart from in this collection/5(8).
  2. Lenny’s first recording of Sibelius’ epic Second Symphony is one of the great ones: taut, exciting as hell, ideally timed, and very well played and recorded, particularly in this clean and clear remastering. It’s part of the Sibelius Two “troika” that also .
  3. Leonard Bernstein's performance with the Vienna Philharmonic is of equally high (if not higher) voltage. It must be said that of the Sibelius symphonies this partnership has so far given us, this is the finest—by far! The Second was idiosyncratic and full of expressive exaggerations.
  4. Bernstein recorded all 7 Sibelius symphonies with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and for Columbia records back in the s. Later, during the s, he revisited Sibelius' 1st, 2nd, 5th and 7th with the Vienna Philharmonic for DG records. On this set, the New York/Columbia recordings of Sibelius' 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th are featured/5(5).
