 Paavo Berglund Conductor
 Berglund, Paavo


Finnish conductor Paavo Berglund (1929–2012) was one of the last conductors with a direct personal connection to Sibelius, and the composer encouraged Berglund early in his conducting career. Berglund’s Sibelius performances with the London Philharmonic Orchestra had a special quality, shown in the Second and Seventh Symphonies already released on the LPO label (LP 0005), and these live concert recordings allow the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies to take flight.

"...measured, though never too slow; they are very well played and given sound of crystalline clarity and ambience. The phrasing and articulation is unexcelled ... I can only hopethat this is the first installment of a Berglund series with the LPO."

John P McKelvey - American Record Guide - January/February 2013


 Performance (Symphonies) ***   (The Swan of Tuonela) *****       Recording ****

"...The special experience here is Berglund’s unlingering, atmospheric way with The Swan of Tuonela, whose cor anglais solo - flowingly and beautifully phrased, and flawlessly in tune - is as spellbinding as you’ll ever hear..."

Malcolm Hayes - BBC Music magazine - February 2013

 


               ***** - Very Good
