Album information

Sir Colin Davis was an instrumental part of the development and success of LSO Live, even leading the way to the label’s first Grammy Award. He has also played the part of ambassador, increasing the audience of the LSO to a worldwide scale. This landmark cycle of Sibelius’s complete symphonies has been described by The Observer as “the finest Sibelius cycle on disc.” All of these works were recorded live at the Barbican Hall between 2002 and 2008. Since their first release, this cycle has received numerable awards, including BBC Music Magazine’s Best Choral Recording, Audiophile Audition’s Best Disc of the Year, Gramophone’s Editor’s Choice, and Le Monde de la Musique’s Choc de l’annee. “There is so much about these performances that is ear-opening- or just plain magnificent.” (BBC Music Magazine) “It is hard to imagine these works in more idiomatic performances… this disc deserves to fly out of the shop.” (The Sunday Times
