Magnificent recordings-4 CDs for the price of three

Symphonies 1 & 4:
*** (3 Stars Penguin Stereo Guide)
"There is that sense of inevitability and of an irresistible forward movement throughout, though never at the expense of incidental beauty. A distinguished issue."

Symphony No 5 (both versions)
"The present account of the definitive Fifth is impressive, and worthy of comparison with the most exalted rivals. Interpretatively Osmo Vanska is eminently sure both in judgement and execution. He rarely puts a foot wrong. The whole work is very well paced. The Lahti orchestra show great commitment and they are, as with earlier issues in the series, splendidly recorded."
Gramophone Magazine

Symphonies Nos 6 & 7 with Tapiola:
"Given the quantity and quality of the rival Sibelius cycles now before the public, it has been gratifying to find how well this new Finnish cycle stands up. The Lahti orchestra bring total dedication to these great scores and Osmo Vanska is a Sibelian of substance. With this account of the Sixth and Seventh Symphonies he brings his survey to a triumphant conclusion.
The Tapiola is thrilling: atmospheric and powerfully built up. This impressive issue should be heard by all Sibelians. It is hardly necessary to say, since the team comprises Robert Suff and Ingo Petry, that the recorded sound is in the first flight."
