Horst Stein - The Sibelius Recordings (3CD)

To mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sibelius, Decca Eloquence collects together the four LPs of the composer’s music that Horst Stein recorded for Decca between 1971 and 1981. They include all the important tone poems, the Second Symphony (receiving its first international release on CD) and music for the theatre. All were critically acclaimed in their time. Known in particular for his work in Bayreuth, Stein conducted 76 performances there between 1969 and 1986. He also held principal positions with the Bamberg, Basel, NHK (Japan) and Suisse Romande Orchestras and all his Sibelius recordings were made with this Swiss orchestra.
