The Minnesota recordings were released on three discs during the years 2012–2016 to critical acclaim: besides top marks from reviewers around the world, the series garnered distinctions such as Editor’s Choice (Gramophone), Orchestral Choice (BBC Music Magazine) and Recording of the Month (MusicWeb International). The disc of Symphonies nos 2 and 5 was included on the New York Times list of the Best Classical Music Recordings of 2012 and nominated to a Grammy for Best Orchestral Recording, an award which its sequel (nos 1 and 4) received the following year. Recommended by the German web site Klassik.com upon its release, the final disc, with Symphonies nos 3, 6 and 7, was recently included on Gramophone’s list of ‘Top 10 Sibelius recordings’.
The three discs have now been gathered into a box set, with the addition of the same team’s 2016 live recording of Kullervo, Sibelius’s first large-scale orchestral work and sometimes called his ‘choral symphony’.
