With this fourth volume, Finnish conductor Pietari Inkinen completes his cycle of Sibelius’s numbered symphonies, of which the Symphonies Nos. 1 and 3 (8572305) were acclaimed as ‘warm and poignant’ (Classical Music Sentinel), Symphonies Nos. 4 and 5 (8572227) as having ‘raw intensity’ (Guardian) and Symphony No. 2 (8572704) as ‘entrancing … highly recommended’ ( The tranquil and sunny poetry of Symphony No. 6 joins the majestic single-movement Symphony No. 7, coupled with Finlandia, the work which established Sibelius’s fame and became a symbol of Finnish freedom.

Classic FM Magazine

November 2011


“Technically, the NZSO sounds better on this disc than on any of its three predecessors; there's delicacy and subtlety in the textures and solos and impressive warmth in the slow-burn orchestral can hardly go wrong with this Sibelius cycle - it's both the perfect introduction and a worthy addition for collectors. Bravo Naxos!”

Financial Times

3rd September 2011


“the young Finn not only draws a fine technical finish from his New Zealanders, but also inculcates an authentic Sibelian style, well-moulded and majestic in the tradition of the great mid-20th century interpreters...Inkinen favours gentle speeds but never loses sight of the music’s underlying pulse”

The Guardian

6th October 2011


“ account of the single-movement Seventh of such strength and singularity of purpose, with no trace of grandstanding or unnecessary rhetoric, that it would be worth the modest price of the disc all on its own”
