Listing Detail Tabs

Alongside the great symphonies and tone poems, music for the theatre played
an important rolê in Sibelius's de­velop­ment. From exquisite nocturnal
tranquility to the macabre 'Dance of Life', Belshazzar's Feast is an exotic
tale of seduction and tragedy to which Sibelius responded with some of his most
hauntingly beautiful writing for the stage. The early Menuetto and lively
Cortège were considered good enough by the composer to be recycled for further
stage productions, while the Overture in E and Scène de Ballet started life as
Sibelius's first attempt at composing a symphony.

This is the second of a six-volume set of orchestral works by Jean Sibelius
which explores his prolific but infrequently-heard work beyond the core oeuvre
of the symphonies, violin concerto and tone poems. Conductor Leif Segerstam has
been acclaimed for his many recordings with numerous orchestras, and was awarded
the annual Finnish State Prize for Music in 2004 and in 2005 the highly
esteemed Sibelius Medal. His recordings for Naxos include a “skillfully and
sweepingly paced” Wagner's Tristan und Isolde (Classic FM on 8660152-54),
his conducting of Alban Berg's Wozzeck regarded as “a giant-killer”
(Gramophone on 8660076-77). The Turku Philharmonic is a platinum record-making
and award winning orchestra, and we are confident that the sheer quality of this
new series will guarantee wide interest in the relatively neglected works of
Finland's greatest and most influential composer.
