Jean Sibelius: The Complete Sibelius Edition 68 CD Box Set (2011)
Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 11,31 Gb
Label: BIS Records | Release Year: 2011

In 2007, the 50th anniversary of Sibelius’s death, BIS begins the release of a 13-volume edition of all the music that the great master ever created – from the symphonies and tone poems to chamber works and songs. As well as the published works, the edition includes rare original versions and world première recordings of works from his youth – material which to a large extent is unique to BIS. The edition – a grand total of some 65 discs – contains previously released as well as new material, in volumes of 4-6 discs sorted by genre. The release schedule for these boxes covers a period of 3-4 years, during which time the recording of as yet unheard music will continue – plans include extracts from early versions of many of the symphonies and Pohjola’s Daughter.
These recordings have been greeted with the highest acclaim, and have often been perceived as greatly contributing to a deeper understanding of the music of the Finnish master. Indeed, the Sibelius catalogue on BIS has become a goldmine for music-lovers as well as for musicologists. The success of this undertaking has been assured by the participation of such musicians as the Lahti Symphony Orchestra under Osmo Vänskä, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra under Neeme Järvi, the Tempera Quartet, Monica Groop, Anne Sofie von Otter, Jorma Hynninen, Jaakko Kuusisto, Leonidas Kavakos, Dong-Suk Kang, Torleif Thedéen and Folke Gräsbeck. Access to rare scores – such as the original version of the Violin Concerto – has kindly been granted by the Sibelius family, with the cooperation of the publishers of Sibelius’s works.
Awards received by BIS’s Sibelius recordings include two Gramophone Awards, three Cannes Classical Awards and two Grand Prix du Disque de l’Académie Charles Cros.
