I listened to No 1 in this cycle, and it doesn't inspire me to hear any more. Extremely mannered performance, and the sound engineer seems to have hung a mike directly over the timps. More of a "must-not buy".

And why another Sibelius cycle? If conductors haven't nailed the music in any of the cycles we have already then they never will.

For complete cycles, I'll stick with Vänskä / Lahti, Berglund / Bournemouth and Rozhdestvensky. I don't need another one.

And certainly not this one! I actually have Lorin Maazel conducting the VPO.
