The legendary partnership of Simon Rattle and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra bears fruit in this definitive collection of the complete symphonies of Jean Sibelius. Rattle’s powerful interpretations of these seminal works – the core of Sibelius’s oeuvre – led him to be described by Gramophone as ‘a Sibelius conductor of the first order’. Every detail is conveyed, every nuance observed in these rapturous renditions of music in which Rattle is wholeheartedly at home.
