In the mid 1980s, Unitel began recording a complete cycle of Sibelius symphonies with Leonard Bernstein and the Vienna Philharmonic. Bernsteinís death in 1990 unfortunately cut short this project after the release of Symphonies Nos 1, 2, 5 and 7.

Recorded live at Viennaís Musikverein, these ecstatic performances were the object of stellar reviews. On this disc, Bernsteinís unique and by now legendary interpretations of Sibelius are released for the first time on Blu-ray.

"Bernstein painted a canvas of late-romantic splendour with the Philharmonic's sound - the incomparable brilliancy of the strings, the glowing intensity of the brass - in a way that only the greatest conductors can." Salzburger Nachrichten (Symphony No.1)

"Bernstein makes this concert a sensational sound adventure." Neue Kronenzeitung (Symphony No.2)
