SIBELIUS, J.: Incidental Music (Turku Philharmonic, Segerstam) (6-CD Box Set)

Parallel to his great sequence of symphonic masterpieces and tone poems, Jean Sibelius wrote a significant body of music for the theatre. It was with King Christian II and Kuolema that he established his fame throughout Europe while some of his most hauntingly beautiful writing for the stage can be found in Belshazzar’s Feast. The tragic pantomime Scaramouche is Sibelius’s only continuous dramatic score, the atmospheric and dramatic Pelléas et Mélisande is one of his most popular works and the rarely performed Jedermann is recognised as a hidden masterpiece. Gramophone wrote of these performances: ‘Leif Segerstam masterminds a characteristically unhurried, atmospheric display. What an absorbing journey of discovery this series has proved to be; congratulations to everyone involved.’
