Yes, I have bought and listened to this record, and I recommend it
strongly. Sibelius #4 is one of my absolute favourites, and I have
listen to a lot of recordings without finding anything like the Karajan
on DG. But this recording by Sakari is great. It is a very compex score.
Sibelius is extremely concrete here, there is not one bar that not have a
function. There is also a very good interpretation of #5. Powerful, and
with a great drive. The sound is good NAXOS-sound.
