Composed 1970, revised 1995. 'Structurally a one movement triple figure in five sections, slow beginning and end, gaining impetus to presto in the centre. This is a work that will please those who value Sibelius' 7 importantly, as I do. It too is logical and strongly contrapuntal - With excellent orchestral playing and BIS' high production standards this CD can be recommended' (Music Web).
BBC Music Magazine 5 stars, Classica-Répertoire recommended, Penguin Guide 3 stars.
