The Minnesota Orchestra’s recording of Sibelius' Second and Fifth Symphonies, conducted by Music Director Osmo Vänskä, has drawn extraordinary praise—and a 2012 Grammy nomination!

Vänskä, one of the world's great interpreters of Sibelius' music, leads the Orchestra in superb recordings of the Finnish composer's beloved Second Symphony, a work both eloquent and powerful, and the majestic Fifth Symphony, an inspired piece of musical architecture.

The album was recorded as a Super Audio CD (SACD) by BIS in June 2011 recording sessions at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis. BIS Hybrid SACDs are playable on all standard CD players.
