The historical Sibelius recordings
Posted by Donald Clarke on November 22, 2015, 1:55 pm
Today's review of the new Warner set is a good one; I like it a lot. But certain chat lists are buzzing about the Andante festivo, said to be the only occasion we have of Sibelius conducting his own work. This is said to be the wrong recording by an unknown conductor, a mistake that goes back decades. The correct recording, conducted by Sibelius, is available on Ondine. Nevertheless, the one in the box is a perfectly nice version of a lovely piece.
