Sibelius album review – Financial Times

“… The result is performances that dig deep in every sense. Mäkelä likes sturdy, forceful, full-fat Sibelius that presents the symphonies as trenchant, highly charged musical arguments. Often, the music will start out slowly, even heavy-footedly, but that marks the start of a long climb upwards, as in the finales of the Second and Fifth Symphonies, which lead to climaxes of rousing passion and power.”
