Santtu-Matias Rouvali & GSO - Sibelius: Symphony No. 2, King Christian II - MusicWeb International - ROTY - RM

Santu-Matias Rouvali is a comparative newcomer to British concert halls —remember concerts? — and having been mightily impressed by his appearance in the Royal Festival Hall, I found that impression confirmed by this splendid studio recording of Sibelius' wild and wonderful Second Symphony, supplemented by a beguiling performance of the youthful, somewhat neglected King Christian II suite.
