SIBELIUS, J.: Symphony No. 2 / Karelia Suite (New Zealand Symphony, Inkinen)

The Guardian has praised Pietari Inkinen as ‘a conductor of bold, sure-footed intelligence’ and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra as ‘a fine, responsive unit’ (Sibelius Symphonies Nos. 1 & 3, 8.572305). This third volume in Naxos’s new series presents the dramatic and highly popular Symphony No. 2, which emerges from the northern mists, cultivating a pastoral atmosphere along the way, to reach a grandiose, heroic finale. One of Sibelius’s best loved compositions, the Karelia Suite presents a series of musical tableaux based on stirring episodes from Finnish history.
