NIELSEN/SCHUMANN/SIBELIUS – COLOGNE PHILHARMONIE, GERMANY

“For the music of his Finnish compatriot [Sibelius], the chief conductor of the WDR Symphony favoured a dark, rather austere sound. Saraste exposed the work in all its modernity, neither emasculating nor forcing the music. He deserves applause for reawakening these two daring Scandinavian symphonies.”
