Sibelius Symphonies Nos 5, 6 & 7
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Owain Arwel Hughes Ensemble

September 2022

The final volume of the complete Sibelius Symphonies from the RPO and Owain Arwel Hughes contains the ever popular 5th coupled with the beautiful less well known 6th, and the ground breaking single movement 7th, the composer’s final word on the symphony. His 8th, apparently completed, was consigned to the fire by Sibelius. The first volume in this cycle was made a Gramophone Editors Choice and was praised for the performances, interpretation and the recorded sound. ‘A performance ..of grip, vitality and communicative power…Hughes’s account of the 3rd Symphony is equally compelling, clarity and expression once again hallmarks of the interpretation….altogether a terrific start to Rubicon’s new cycle’
