Anthony Collins Sibelius: The Complete Symphonies Limited Vinyl 6LP Set

These recordings from the Mono era represent the first complete collection of the Sibelius symphonies. The project was initiated by Victor Olof, a legendary Decca producer, who had the foresight to select one of the prominent conductors of the past century, Anthony Collins. Notably, this is not only the first complete Sibelius cycle, but also one of the very few recording projects consulted with the composer himself. Combined with Collins' sense of excitement and inspiration, these recordings form a set of historical significance that has stood the test of time."Collins had made his name composing scores for the RKO studios, earning three Oscar nominations, before Victor Olof invited him to record with the London Symphony Orchestra. The result was a Sibelius cycle that is yet to be bettered." The Sunday Telegraph, 2009
