Sibelius, J.: Symphonies Nos. 1-7 / Orchestral Fragments (BBC Philharmonic, Storgårds)
Chandos: CHAN10809-11

John Storgårds conducts the BBC Philharmonic in a complete survey of his countryman Jean Sibelius's Symphonies, including three fragments of late works completed by Timo Virtanen. Each Symphony is a complete world unto itself, from the grand romanticism of the first, the modern tensions of the fourth, the desolate stillness of the sixth to majesty of his single-movement seventh.

Despite the levity of the title, the music of Gil Shaham is always worthy of serious consideration. Still, why not have some fun? According to Gil, "As a violinist dedicated to my art, I've always looked to help the Greater Good. When I heard that Classical Music is used as a tool to drive away loiterers I thought I’d found my niche."
