Andrew Mellor
Gramophone, January 2016

To describe this as an important snapshot of orchestral Helsinki in 2015 is to belittle the touching gift that is Finns offering us their greatest music with such undemonstrative heart and soul. In the same vein, perhaps the icing on an undeniably epic cake of performance and analysis is Piia Hirvensalo’s kooky documentary series Sort of Sibelius. Here we get psychology, psychiatry, philosophy, graphology, toxicology and even mixology: a delightful sequence in which two professional alcohol pundits attempt to drink like Sibelius did. In a word, unparalleled. © 2016 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

…the performances were top class and the production values of the set are worthy not only of these fine performances but of these great symphonies. © 2015 MusicWeb International Read complete review
