Sibelius album review – Classica Magazine

“At the head of the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, the Finnish Klaus Mäkelä is the youngest conductor to have recorded all seven Sibelius symphonies … It is clear that the result is a masterpiece.

Mäkelä brings to the fore a rhythmic rigour and depth that is perceptible as early as the First Symphony … Never one-dimensional, his conducting triumphs in Symphony No. 3, which is one of the richest versions in the discography.”
