Sibelius album review – BBC Radio 3

“This is an incredible cycle. It’s fiery and at times introspective and I think that where it really succeeds is in creating the sense that the landscape of all seven of Sibelius’ symphonies is one unified terrain, across which Mäkelä is able to send different emotional psychological weather patterns – but he keeps the sense of one unified terrain at the heart of it … An amazing debut. Very special indeed.”
