Sibelius: Symphony No. 2, Tubin: Symphony No. 5 - Cincinnati SO/Järvi          (7 of 7 found this review helpful)
  July 8, 2004

I can comment only on the Sibelius at this time, I haven't spent enough time with the Tubin yet (I have some of his other works by the way, and certainly he composed some good stuff-I just don't know this symphony well enough yet.)

Mahler: Symphony No. 4 - San Francisco/Michael Tilson Thomas          (1 of 1 found this review helpful)
  March 9, 2004
