COLLINS The Sibelius Symphonies, Volume 1

This week we begin a short series which will bring to you the complete symphonies of Sibelius, as recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Anthony Collins, beginning with Symphonies Nos. 1 and 2.

This ground-breaking set of Decca recordings, made between 1952 and 1955, was the first to bring the complete set of Sibelius' symphonies to an audience outside of Scandinavia, contributing enormously to the recognition and popularity of Finland's finest composer. These new XR-remastered Ambient Stereo releases further enhance the fine sound of the original recordings, highlighting both the composer's huge orchestral vision and his wonderful use of fine detail.
