The much-anticipated final release in the Minnesota Orchestra survey of Sibelius’ symphonies is here! Recorded at Orchestra Hall in May and June 2015 by BIS, the album features Music Director Osmo Vänskä leading the Orchestra in Sibelius’ lean and beautiful Third Symphony, the mysterious Sixth and his majestic, one-movement Seventh Symphony, a crowning achievement of the Finnish composer’s life and work.
The CD will be released in the US on September 9, 2016, but a limited quantity will be available for purchase online and at Orchestra Hall while supplies last.
