For the first time Sir Colin Davis’s acclaimed LSO Live recordings of Sibelius’s symphonies appear together as a 4CD set.
Sibelius is one of the composers with whom Sir Colin has been most closely associated throughout his career. His LSO Live recordings of the symphonies were recorded between 2002 and 2008 and have collected numerous awards.
All seven symphonies, plus Sibelius’s early symphonic poem Kullervo, will be packaged on 4 CDs in a custom card box together with extensive notes and the complete text for Kullervo.
Sir Colin’s other recent LSO Live releases include Haydn’s Die Schöpfung and Verdi’s Requiem. During October he begins recording a complete cycle of Nielsen’s symphonies.

Kullervo & His Sister
Kullervo Goes To Battle

“The mature Davis has a way with the music’s architecture like few other conductors. The pace of the expansive Second and Fifth Symphonies is masterful. Combined with the innate warmth and pretty much faultless playing of the LSO, it makes for some of the most readily satisfying performances available.”

“Mature wisdom and beautiful playing from the LSO”
