All thanks for this masterwork go to Mats
Here’s a performance of the Sibelius Symphony No. 2 in the same vein as Berglund’s Helsinki recording, also from the mid-’80s — mostly direct and straightforward, and based on my now extensive listening experience, often seemingly bordering on the impetuous. The allegretto first movement flies by with nary a ponderous moment, but with a great deal of sparkle, vim and vigor. The alacrity makes for a most effective transition to the dramatically downshifted andante second movement; here’s where Järvi and company…

Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (BIS) Jean Sibelius – The Lemminkäinen Suite (Järvi)

front-small-boxset
Neeme Järvi’s recording of Sibelius’s Lemminkäinen Suite on BIS is one of the more satisfying accounts of this masterpiece in the catalogue. It comes across as structurally tighter than most, and does deliver a sense of inevitability to the music – no meandering here, and every note is taken to be an indispensable contribution to the whole. The end result is sometimes thrilling.

Audiophile HD-Vinyls 24/192 (BIS) Jean Sibelius – Symphony Nr. 7 / Kuolema (Incidental Music) (Neeme Järvi)

front-small-boxsetMany 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.
Audiophile factor: VERY HIGH!

Audiophile HD-Vinyls 24/192 (Proprius) Johan Helmich Roman – 4 Flute Sonatas

front-small-boxsetMany many thanks to Mats for another rare audiophile swedish gem
In the 17th century the German-born Düben family played a key role in Swedish music life. Gustav (c1628-1690) put together a large collection of music from all over Europe. It is ironic that he did not include a single piece by a Swedish composer. The reason seems to have been that at that time there were no Swedish composers. In the first half of the 17th century German composers dominated the music scene, later French and Italian musicians played their part. Johan Helmich Roman, the composer of the sonatas which are the subject of the present disc, is the first composer of Swedish birth in history. He played a major role in the development of music life.

Audiophile factor: VERY HIGH!
You think, you have read somewhere the name PROPRIUS? Oh yeah….think of the Carissimi Oratorium Jefta, Cantate Domino or Händel’s Messiah, only to name some of the most known rips, here at boxset.

Composer: Johan Helmich Roman
