Eduard van Beinum

Sibelus: Tone Poems; Violin Concerto (2CD)

Eduard van Beinum was quite a Sibelius pioneer and collected here are his complete Sibelius recordings for Decca and Philips. The set also marks the first appearance on CD of his Violin Concerto in a 1952 performance by Jan Damen (a former leader of the Concertgebouw) and the London Philharmonic. A collector’s haven, this 2CD set is completed with Thomas Jensen’s 1953 recording of the Four Legends, an absolute rarity, played with tremendous energy and spirit.
