JEAN SIBELIUS

Finnish Radio Symphony, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, with Joseph Swensen (violin)

[ Sony / RCA / Finlandia / 8 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Friday 13 March 2020

"Mr. Saraste's direction is alert and spontaneous. His tempos grab and hold the listener, and the orchestra plays with a sure sense of style. The brasses are incisive, the woodwinds reedy and a bit nasal, the strings strident or cushioning, all as appropriate." New York Times
