FIRST INTERNATIONAL RELEASE ON CD (Sym No 2) To mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sibelius, Decca Eloquence collects together the four LPs of the composer's music that 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 - he conducted 76 performances there between 1969 and 1986, Stein held principal positions with the Bamberg, Basel, NHK (Japan) and Suisse Romande Orchestras, and all his Sibelius recordings were made with this Swiss orchestra. 'well-wrought performances... the finest thing on this disc is to my mind Pohjola's Daughter of which Mr. Stein gives a powerful and compelling account, and whose atmosphere and detail is excellently captured by the Decca engineers... Stein has a genuine feeling for Sibelius' Gramophone (August 1972) 'the playing in that warhorse Finlandia is enormously alert' Gramophone (July 1972)
