Quote from: Leo K. on September 22, 2022, 09:17:32 AMI know Hurwitz (on his YouTube channel) really hates the Colin Davis London Symphony set - but I REALLY love that set now. I love all of Davis's Sibelius.
Quote from: relm1 on September 22, 2022, 04:28:42 PMMaybe it isn't that he hates it, just that it doesn't compare to Colin Davis's Boston Symphony Sibelius Cycle which is exceptional. The LSO cycle is meh in comparison. When I heard Davis/LSO, I was hoping for a digital version of BSO but it was a sleeper version where BSO was on fire.
Quote from: vers la flamme on September 23, 2022, 02:33:23 PMWell damn, guys, I truly do not need another Sibelius cycle, but these comments are seriously tempting me to seek out the Colin Davis Boston set which I know is very inexpensive. But no, I'll resist (for now). Lately I've been listening to Ashkenazy/Philharmonia and Maazel/Vienna. I do have a few minor reservations about both of them, but they are both incredible takes on the music.

Quote from: Irons on November 16, 2022, 11:53:03 PMYou are not asking me but Robert Layton knows his Sibelius.https://youtu.be/dN9BDWPdtIo
Quote from: Madiel on November 17, 2022, 01:10:39 AMI wasn't specifically asking about Sibelius reviews. The basic issue is which critics I can actually go and read/listen to on a regular basis.The BBC record review is in fact one of the better alternative options I know about, so long as you can find a relevant episode.
Quote from: Brian on November 14, 2022, 02:34:34 PMapropos of nothing, my ideal cycle, without repeating conductors:1 - Segerstam/Helsinki2 - Paray/Detroit (especially if you could edit out his humming)3 - Mustonen/Helsinki Festival4 - Ashkenazy/Philharmonia5 - Bernstein/New York6 - Blomstedt/San Francisco7 - not sure I could identify one that is ideal.
