"I suspect that it is very possible for an uninspired orchestra to make this work sound boring, and am glad to report that the Royal Scottish National plays it with much musical conviction. I shall like to hear this played by a Swedish team, but for now, this Naxos album is a revelatory encounter for me, and I'm sure it will be for anyone interested in the music of Scandinavia, circa the time of Sibelius. Recorded in Henry Wood Hall, the sound is very truthful, capturing many details among the winds, giving due prominence to the combined brass sections and laying the heavy drums in its rightful place in the whole picture. I eagerly await Volume 2."
