From our blog, 3 September 2016: 

Osmo Vänskä’s latest release with the Minnesota Orchestra brings to a close not his first but his second series of the complete Sibelius symphonies and, according to The Sunday Times, “confirms his status as our greatest living Sibelian”. BBC Music Magazine made the recording their Orchestral Choice (August 2016) and Gramophone their Editor’s Choice (September 2016), both publications praising Vänskä’s new performances in particular for their clarity – “of rhythm, of texture, of intention” (Gramophone). If you’re wondering whether to re-invest in Vänskä’s re-interpretations, James Longstaffe writes in Presto Classical that “even if you already own Vänskä’s earlier cycle with the Lahti Symphony Orchestra, I think that these new performances are simply unmissable.”
