Symphony 2 - Sibelius (symphony that firmly showed own, unique style - [Decca WB "Made in Engalnd"] SXL 6125)

£10.99

Product description

(featuring the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by the French-American, Lorin Maazel, in an Early / Mid Sixties recording)

A highly-collectable piece of vinyl, with, not only, a Decca Wide Band format on the centre of the disc, but crucially, the wording "Made in England", at the "11 O'clock" position, on the outer rim of the centre label.

Jean Sibelius (1865-1957) was in a very enviable position, after 1897 : The Finnish Government granted him a pension for life, in that year, at the tender age of 32. Thus, Sibelius could give up his teaching work, and concentrate solely, on his composing.

He was somewhat unsure of himself, in the field of symphonic composition, not feeling that his powers were sufficiently mature to handle the composition of a symphony. However, he already had an interest in the symphonic-poem format, derived from his early preoccupation with chamber music and, by 1899, this connection had led to the completion of Symphony No.1 ...

It was in Sibelius' Second Symphony, composed in 1902, that the Finnish composer, was really able to establish his own, unique style of creativity. Symphony No.2, also contributed to a renaissance of the classical symphonic tradition, elsewhere in Europe.

Side One : Symphony No.2 in D major Op.43, by Sibelius :-
1) I Allegretto 2) II Tempo andante.
Side Two : Symphony 2 (conclusion) :-
1) III Vivacissimo 2) IV Allegro moderato.

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) EX-/EX.
