Schoenberg/Sibelius – Oslo Concert Hall, Norway

Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, Anu Komsi

“Saraste’s qualities, apparent from the first half of the concert, were given an even bigger canvas on which to unfold; not a single phrase sounded indifferent…and at the same time one could discern his confident sense of form within this vastness, which is in no way obvious in this piece. The expressionistic qualities in every phrase resonated with the great whole; everything fell into place.

That’s no small achievement, in repertoire which one doesn’t so often have the chance to experience in a concert hall here.”
