Recorded ‚live’ at Helsinki University’s Festival Hall, 17 June 1953 - This disc is of the greatest musical interest. It contains a complete concert from Helsinki entirely devoted to the music of Sibelius conducted by Leopold Stokowski from 1955, marking the 90th birthday of the composer. As such, it is an utterly unique document in itself, but as it also contains previously unavailable material in the conductor’s commercial discography, refined by the latest technological advances to obtain the best possible sound, it self-evidently becomes a major addition to the recorded legacy of this very great conductor.
