"SIBELIUS SYMPHONY NO 1: A better launch can’t be imagined: when Sibelius’ First Symphony had been premièred in Helsinki it travelled on a tour with Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Robert Kajanus to Stockholm, Copenhagen, Hamburg and Berlin to finish at the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris. Sibelius wrote from Berlin: “My music was a glorious, colossal success.”
"STRAUSS Der Rosenkavalier Suite:
When Richard Strauss set music to the intrigues of this comedy taking place in 18th century Vienna, he created some of his most voluptuous orchestral sounds, as seductive as the characters’ love games. A grand orchestration with wonderful waltzes and melodies to die for. The opera’s highlights have been selected in this suite – generously rich both in variety and expression.
