Many many thanks to Mats for another rare gem of the swedish audiophile label BIS
Neeme Jarvi’s partnership with the Gothenburg orchestra is “a living legend in Nordic music” – Daily Telegraph (London). All the Sibelius masterpieces from a superb orchestra that he himself conducted. He has the measure of Sibelius’s northern sensibilities, but doesn’t overdo the bleakness; on the other hand, there is a forthrightness, even a toughness to his interpretations that well suit a composer who fairly early in his career turned rather decisively from lush romanticism to a more restrained neo-classicism.
