About

Throughout his long career Sir Colin Davis has been a consistent champion of the music of Jean Sibelius. The release of Symphony No. 2 is the fourth title in his acclaimed cycle of the composer's symphonic works for LSO Live.

Concert Review:
"Thirty years after his Boston Symphony Orchestra recording of the Second Symphony - long regarded as a benchmark in this work - his enquiring mind is still finding subtly new ways of guiding listeners through the composer's musical logic. Here there was a real feeling of progression from the fragmentary motifs of the opening movement to the climatic 'big tune' of the finale" Daily Telegraph
