Sibelius: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 3
New Zealand Symphony Orchestra / Pietari Inkinen

[ Naxos / CD ]

Release Date: Monday 1 November 2010

"With this disc they start a cycle of the symphonies, and meet the challenge with a sensitivity and mellow charm that often eludes more virtuoso orchestras...the performance [of No. 1] has atmosphere and character. And by coupling it with the Third, Inkinen underlines the huge shift in creative thinking that separates the two works." Financial Times, 25th September 2010 ****
