Sibelius: Finlandia is a fitting finale to this Sibelius series which also includes critically acclaimed recordings of four of his symphonies. Sibelius's symphonic poems and theatre music suites, popular in their day, now feature far too rarely in orchestral concert programmes. Fortunately the situation is balanced up by a large recorded legacy of these masterworks of musical poetry and this release can hold its own with the best around. The only aberration here relates to otherwise excellent recorded sound. In The Swan of Tuonela, Sarah-Jayne Porsmoguer's beautiful, mellowtoned cor anglais solo has been forward-projected to an extent that skews the music's internal balance; Porsmoguer never plays too loudly but even so, there are times when parts of the orchestra's ultra-quiet accompaniment can barely be heard at all.
Sibelius: En Saga, Op. BBC National Orchestra of Wales. Sibelius: Finlandia, Op. The wonderfully descriptive Swan of Tuonela finds Sibelius at his mystical best as he casts the cor anglais as the majestic swan from Finnish mythology. Sibelius: Finlandia is a fitting finale to this Sibelius series which also includes critically acclaimed recordings of four of his symphonies. Søndergård’s approach conjures a pulsing energy of the kind which seems to well up from within the music itself, rather than being driven from without; he also has a canny awareness of how a tiny, unobtrusive shift of pace now and again can make a whole Sibelian musical structure.
