Det har kommet svært mange anmeldelser av Oslo-Filhamonien og Klaus Mäkeläs album med Sibelius-symfonier siden den ble utgitt på Decca Classics i vår.

Her er utdrag fra og lenker til noen av anmeldelsene:

David Nice i BBC Music Magazine skriver:

"Mäkelä's Sibelius is an electrifying triumph ... Most Finnish greats have recorded cycles of Sibelius symphonies at least once ... Who'd have predicted that this latest, from Klaus Mäkelä at the helm of the Oslo Philharmonic, one of the two orchestras who adore their principal conductor, would be the most electrifying and often revelatory of them all?"

Greg Keane i Limelight skriver:

"New conductor takes his place in the Pantheon of Sibelius interpreters ... This set, in terms of conducting, playing and recording, is a milestone in modern Sibelius interpretation."

Emily McGregor i BBC Radio 3:

"This is an incredible cycle. lt's fiery and at times introspective and I think that where it really succeeds is in creating the sense that the landscape of all seven of Sibelius' symphonies is one unified terrain, across which Mäkelä is able to send different emotional psychological weather patterns - but he keeps the sense of one unified terra in at the heart of it ... An amazing debut ... very special indeed."

Maren Ørstavik i Aftenposten skriver:

"Lyspunkter er det (...) nok av på de fire CD-ene som utgjør samlingen. Oslo-Filharmoniens skinnende klangfullhet er et av dem. De spiller som om de både elsker musikken og har studert den nøye ..."

Edward Seckerson i Gramophone skriver:

"So much of the musical energy of these symphonies stems from rhythm and articulation, from a propulsive sense of inevitability, and that’s something that Mäkelä has mastered to a fault. He also has a theatrical nose for atmosphere, which is apparent from the moment that desolate solo clarinet at the start of the First Symphony surveys the landscape that will become Sibelius’s enduring musical canvas."

Magnus Andersson i Klassekampen skriver:

"Strykerklangen er rundere, varmere, dypere og bredere, alt etter hva musikken ber om, og når musikken veksler farge setter Mäkelä umiddelbart inn blåserne i perfekt og nyansert balanse. Lyden av Oslo-Filharmonien er tiltalende. Tanken på at de over tid kan spille under en dirigent som kan fremmane denne typen sanselighet inngir håp for fremtiden."

Geoff Brown i The Times skriver:

"Right from the start with the lonely clarinet's solo in Symphony No. 1, you feel the music's vivid emotions and colouring, soon complemented by singing strings and a body of brass powerful enough to be blasting out Wagner or Bruckner. By the end of this proudly nationalistic symphony, as with Mäkelä's reading of the Second, the more modernist Fourth, and the one-movement triumph of the Seventh, I sat back pretty much exhausted with joy."
