Gramophone Magazine

August 2010

“Bernstein, unsurprisingly, takes [Sibelius] on a journey of his own...Against the odds, the result is a totally memorable interpretation operating at a higher voltage than almost any other. We can observe now how much the orchestra's intensity and commitment delights the man on the rostrum”
