Sibelius album review – Rondo Magazine

“… Rhythmically pointed, beautiful in timbre and immensely supple … Mäkelä staggers the sonorities splendidly, giving the colors their richness from below, from the double basses. The tempi seem brisk, but in reality mostly lag behind Herbert Blomstedt. That is, momentum and grand brio of these recordings are not prejudiced, but motivated from within the structure. Here, simply, it has been well illuminated.”
