DECCA PRESENTS KLAUS MÄKELÄ’S DEBUT ALBUM: COMPLETE SIBELIUS SYMPHONIES WITH OSLO PHILHARMONIC
RELEASE DATE: 25 MARCH
Decca has launched the pre-order for Klaus Mäkelä’s upcoming Sibelius release – a complete cycle of the symphonies, plus the tone poem Tapiola and 3 Late Fragments. Mäkelä, who recently became the first conductor to sign to Decca since Riccardo Chailly, directs the Oslo Philharmonic, an orchestra with a deep, historic connection to the music of the Finnish composer.
‘Under Klaus Mäkelä’s baton, Sibelius’ mysticism of nature appeared more adventurous than I have heard before.’ – NRK Radio
