‘Sibelius’s Symphony No.2 was raw, massive, glacial, thrilling. Elder and the Hallé have a strong track record in this repertoire. There were too many moments of revelation to enumerate.’

The Observer on the Hallé’s performance of Sibelius Symphony No.2 at The Bridgewater Hall, September 2012

Following the recording of Symphonies No.1 and 3, this release marks the second disc of Sibelius works from the award-winning Hallé under Sir Mark Elder. The disc includes the long awaited recording of Elder’s interpretation of the ever-popular Symphony No. 2, a work closely associated with the Hallé who gave the British premiere in 1905.
