Leif Segerstam / Gothenburg SO, Alla marcia from Karelia Suite.
Have you ever see anyone else conduct the work like this (especially in the little repeat near the beginning, from c. 0'30 to 0'45)?

Any Sibelius with Celibidache is worth a listen. Here's a 1986 live performance of the Violin Concerto with soloist Ingolf Turban-kp

Will they make a new cycle?

By the way, Salonen/CSO will perform Lemminkäinen Suite in 2014. What a event!

Great account of No. 7 from Rattle, lets hope he records all seven in Berlin. His conducting mannerisms remind me more and more of Bernstein--very inspiring --kp

This is a tremendous performance of Sibelius fifth finale with Esa Pekka Salonen conducting UBS Verbier Fest. SO, even finer than his Swedish Radio SO in circulation. I've got the DVD coupled with Salonen's LA Variations--kp

One of the great Sibelius Seconds. George Szell with Cleveland Orchestra live from Tokyo, 1970. One of my all time favourites-kp

I'm doing some research on Sibelius and France. I've come across a classical music forum which features Sibelius's 'Pohjola's Daughter' conducted by Pierre Monteux. As you can see from the discussion this great work has a different ending in this performance. Apart from this conundrum its a great performance. Can anybody cast any light on the ending--kp

........jaw drops.......
WHAT ON EARTH?

That ending is pure invention - but not by Sibelius! Somebody must have thought 'hey, why not end it loudly' and made a crude attempt to do so.

Pure lunacy. Turns a very good performance into a farce.

I quite agree. I'm pretty sure that this 'ending' did not feature in the actual concert. Some idiot has clearly edited out the original ending and replaced it with the earlier brass episode. Also I cannot see a musician of Monteux's Stature and integrity deliberately changing the score in this manner. I've looked up reviews of this performance which was given at a Sunday evening with Monteux concert with San Francisco SO on 29th February, 1948. Raymond Tuttle writing on Classical Net remarks that 'Pohjola's Daughter pulses with atmosphere and with sensitive orchestra playing, you'll seldom hear Sibelius's music sound more beautiful than this'. In another review from Music Web International Jonathan Woolf remarks 'To finish we have an accomplished Pohjola's Daughter'. Neither reviewers make mention of any 'alternative ending'. I would love to get hold of the authentic Cd of this performance. Monteux was a decent Sibelius conductor. He gave the first San Francisco performance of Sibelius's third Symphony in January, 1942.--kp

Here we have a recording from 1914 of American virtuoso Maud Powell playing Sibelius 'Musette' from King Christian 11. She also gave the US premiere of the Sibelius violin concerto on November 30th, 1906--kp

One of my very favourite symphonies. Howard Hanson's third. Gerard Schwarz conducts the Seattle SO. We have the third movement 'Andante tranquillo'. This marvellous music always takes me back to a few years ago motoring across Pennsylvania with a glorious sunset--kp

Video of a recent concert to celebrate the Sibelius 150 from France. Mikko Franck conducts the Radio France Philharmonic in excellent performances. Includes En saga and seventh symphony. 'Long despised by his contemporaries' according to the comments. We know that JS also had many admirers from Vaughan Williams and Shostakovich to Schoenberg--kp

I just love 'Onward Ye Peoples' from Sibelius's Masonic music. Here is the Georgia Tech SO and Choir--kp
