'His Berlioz series on LSO Live entranced listeners around the world with the combination of his love for the music and the spontaneity of live performance. Now Sir Colin's s first Sibelius recordings for the label are set to achieve the same.'
Editor's Choice

'Anyone lucky enough to have been at these magnificent Barbican concerts last autumn will know that Davis is enjoying a remarkable Indian summer with the LSO; those who weren't can discover from this magnificent recording.'
The Observer (UK)

'exhilarating - Davis cogently builds the great work to its inevitable climax in a performance that is as impressive in the tempestuous brass passages as in the airy lightness of the woodwind and strings in the scherzo.'
Sunday Telegraph (UK)

'It is hard to imagine these works in more idiomatic performances ... Davis remains one of the world's leading international Sibelians, and his love for this music emerges from every bar of his pristine, expansive yet momentous account ... this new version is still more intense, yearning, mysterious ... this disc deserves to fly out of the shops.'
Sunday Times (UK)

'the orchestra wallows in the music's concentrated magnificence, creating gripping tensions and glorious releases that will leave few listeners untouched.'
Evening Standard (UK)

'an absolutely masterful characterization of music that in most other performances puzzles as often as it enchants ... this release will be tough to beat'
