Description


“What makes Davis’s Sibelius compelling is that he manages to have it both ways. He gives these fine players the encouragement to turn individual passages into moments of spine-tingling magic …But he never loses sight of the bigger objective, which is to pull together, bit by bit, the seemingly disparate themes … I doubt whether I shall ever hear an orchestra and conductor achieve a closer rapport in Sibelius” (BBC Radio 3) “one of the finest performances of Sibelius’s Seventh ever on disc” (Classic FM) “Mature wisdom and beautiful playing” (The Times)
