Sir JOHN BARBIROLLI was one of Great Britain’s best loved conductors. He devoted his love for Sibelius through programming his works from his early career through to the end of his life. The Barbirolli Society reissues recordings by this famous conductor, either those from the studio or concert hall. There are many devoted to Sibelius, beginning with his early commercial recordings from New York.
The internationally renowned Swedish record label, BIS, has recorded every note written by Sibelius including extracts to works that have not been widely published. The recordings are among the best available with authoritative interpreters and scholarly, interesting notes on the music in each issue.
