Distinctions The Qobuz Ideal Discography
A generous double disc of Sibelius' most celebrated tone poems and less familiar works, this 2004 EMI Classics compilation is recommended as a fine alternative to skimpier greatest-hits packages. Yes, Finlandia is here, along with the popular Swan of Tuonela, Pohjola's Daughter, and the Karelia Suite, and Sir Malcolm Sargent's outstanding renditions with the Vienna Philharmonic and the BBC Symphony Orchestra are brilliantly remastered. But the riveting performances by Antal Dorati and the London Symphony Orchestra of En Saga, Night Ride & Sunrise, and The Oceanides are exciting finds that no Sibelius buff should miss. Sir Alexander Gibson's performances with the Scottish National Orchestra of King Christian II Suite, Karelia Overture, The Bard, and Festivo may have the least focused sound, but the playing is deeply expressive and wonderfully rich in Romantic coloration. More difficult to embrace, however, are the songs, evocatively performed by soprano Siv Wennberg and pianist Geoffrey Parsons, but a little hard to follow without translated lyrics. The referral to EMI's website for the texts is unreasonable, and the label may be faulted for cutting costs here. Yet this one drawback does not weigh too heavily against the quantity of great performances and the excellent remastering, which give this reissue exceptional value.
