180-gram vinyl, six LP box set

Numbered, limited edition

Mastered from the original mono tapes!

High on the list of requests for reissues from Decca are conductor Anthony Collins's recordings of Sibelius's Symphonies. Collins' 1952-55 Sibelius cycle with the London Symphony Orchestra for Decca has acquired something of a cult status over the decades. It was the first collection of Sibelius' complete symphonies, performed by one orchestra and conductor. Decca proudly presents these recording, 150 years after the birth of Jean Sibelius and 60 years after the completion of this pioneering project, now reissued in a six-LP set for the very first time. Lovingly remastered from the original tapes.
