The second instalment in Sir Colin Davis’s new LSO Live Sibelius cycle follows hot on the heels of the first critically-acclaimed release featuring the Third and Seventh Symphonies. Sibelius was one of the most gifted and innovative symphonists who created music of astonishing beauty and luminosity. His Fifth Symphony is a breathtaking voyage that culminates in a resplendent finale, whilst the Symphony No 6 is more subtle, mysterious and refined to perfection.

 

"It’s terrific from beginning to end"


ClassicsToday.com - 3 June 2004

’"the sense of organic growth and of architectural coherence founded upon the wonderful tonal resources of the LSO make the performance hard to resist."

The Guardian - 24 June 2004

"Conductor and orchestra give commanding performances of both symphonies. The fifth is majestic and inspired, beautifully detailed and paced."

Evening Standard - 11 June 2004

"...a crafty pairing: the familiar fifth, played with all the seasoned wisdom one would expect of this veteran maestro and his mean London machine, alongside the less well-known, but no less rewarding sixth ... a must for serious collectors."

The Observer - 27 June 2004

"Certainly few conductors before the public today can match his [Sir Colin Davis’s] Sibelius ... the Fifth has magnificent breadth and a powerful atmosphere ...The Sixth was always one of the triumphs of Sir Colin’s Sibelius cycles and so it proves again here."

International Record Review - July/August 2004

       *** Classical CD of the Week ***

Sunday Times - 30 May 2004

"This LSO Live Sibelius/Davis series is turning out very well indeed. In the Fifth the sense of growth, of many facets all belonging to an organic whole, is outstanding ... the Sixth Symphony] is an exemplary performance ... Strongly recommended."

BBC Music Magazine - August 2004

"It courses with life from start to finish. This is terrain well travelled by Sir Colin ... but the latest recording, from the London Symphony itself far surpasses both [previous recordings."


New York Times - 27 June 2004

"stunning ... Flawless committed playing of the LSO, but what’s really remarkable is the sense of space that Davis brings to the music - you can hear every note in the orchestral texture"
