HD-Vinyls 24/192 (EMI/Melodyia) Jean Sibelius – Symphonies No. 5 & 6 (Rozhdestvensky)

Many thanks to Jean-Luc for this pearl
Rozhdestvensky is one of the later Soviet conductors who was still young enough to have a lengthy post Soviet career. These Sibelius recordings are from the 1970s when he was in his 40s. One has to accept that the Soviet brass sections were always a bit blaring and intrusive. It adds excitement at climaxes but also can upset the musical balance. Bearing that in mind, Rozhdestvensky brings an exceptional lyrical impulse to these works combined with a consistent rhythmic impulse which keeps the music from becoming unfocused. In the Sixth symphony Rozhdestvensky does a particularly brilliant job with the first two movements. The opening with strings and woodwind is magically handled and the movement gently evolves out of that, building momentum without seeming to. The brass provide a blazing punctuation to the movement right before the final cadence. The second movement carries the listener to the edge of a Finnish forest where little noises and rustling trees disturb the solitude in evanescent fashion. The final two movements are excellent but not quite to the level of the earlier ones.
