Sibelius: Symphony No. 2 in D – BBC Symphony Orchestra, Sir Thomas Beecham / Dvorák: Symphony No. 8 in G minor – Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Thomas Beecham

‘Sensational, thrilling, incandescent: these words put you in touch with this live Beecham version of Sibelius 2 and the Dvorák races not far behind.

London in December 1954 must have been a haven for chest infections and the common cold. Beecham’s incandescent live concert version of the Sibelius Second Symphony is troubled with a dusting of coughs and throat clearings. Yet it hardly matters. Perversely it enhances the experience of the music – bringing you into close proximity to the experience of this concert…

There are coughs and sneezes in the Dvorák but again these are of little consequence in the face of such an excitingly flighted almost Tchaikovskian interpretation…

Record of the Month and certainly in my list for Recording of the Year.’

Rob Barnett, Music Web International
