Format: Audio CD
These are wonderful performances, demonstrating the drama and intensity of Bernstein's later years. That said, they also represent some of the criticisms that are often made of the late Bernstein: extremely slow tempi, a self indulgent approach that often ignores entirely the intentions of composers, and an over the top approach that can come across as crass and vulgar to those familiar with more traditional interpretations of these works. This is not a set to own if you wish to have only one Enigma or collection of Sibelius symphonies.
For those interested in a different approach to some familiar works however, this is an excellent buy. Bernstein pulls out all of the stops in these works, presenting a powerful Sibelius first symphony filled with grand gestures and arresting moments. The second is somewhat less succcessful, as its slow movement often loses momentum at such a slow tempo, and Bernstein's decision to accelerate the tempo during the development of the final movement fails to enhance what is already one of the weaker moments of the work. The fifth and seventh are also filled with dramatic moments, though the famous horn theme from the finale of the fifth gets buried at points, marring the otherwise brilliant movement (a conscious decision on Bernstein's part, but there is little counter melody beneath this theme that really demands to be heard over it). For a good fifth, see Karajan's Berlin recordings (on either EMI or DG), and for a good seventh, go to Maazel or Davis. If you are looking for a complete set, Colin Davis' set with the Boston symphony still remains the linchpin of the catalogue.
A final word needs to said about the Elgar.

Format: Audio CD
Leonard Bernstein's live recording of Sibelius's First Symphony with the Vienna Philharmonic(from 1990, the year Bernstein died), featured on this 3-CD set (and previously out-of-print), is easily the greatest recording of this symphony ever. No one--not even Bernstein himself in his earlier NYP recording for Sony--has brought out the depth and power of this work as Bernstein does in this recording, making a strong case for this symphony as one of the greatest Romantic symphonies of all time.(Those looking for a taut, lean, non-sentimental performance should look elsewhere, but they'd be missing the message of this symphony). The opening clarinet plays the main theme hauntingly and the main theme from the first movement is played like no other recording. Instead of a brisk, no-nonsense tempo that makes this theme sound a bit abrupt, Bernstein draws it out with intense passion, making it sound more Tchaikovskyesque than ever before. Lest one fear that Bernstein is all around too slow in this movement, he speeds up the tempo at just the right moments to create a nail-biting excitement that other performances lack. The slow movement is done beautifully, again with increased tempos in the development to the fast part, making one forget that this is the adagio. The scherzo is very exciting, with the drummers playing their hearts out to keep up with Bernstein's conducting. It is the last movement that really stands out. Bernstein starts it at a very deliberate tempo, to enhance anticipation for what's to come. The "big tune" is, in its first appearance, very powerful, but on the brisk side. The rest of the development is truly astonishing in its excitement but it's the return of the "big tune" that never ceases to amaze me.Read more ›

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Santa Fe Listener HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on March 17, 2006
Format: Audio CD
Fifteen years after his death, DG has decided to give us ultra-bargain box sets of Bernstein's late recordings. As is well known, he could be eccentric in this period, often too slow and self-indulgent. Those flaws are at their worst here in the Sibelius Sym. #2 form Vienna and the Elgar from London. But the other Sibelius, particularly Sym. #7, shows real depth of feeling and justifies Bernstein's expressive indulgences. The Four Sea Interludes are moving for being part of the last public concert he gave in Tanglewood with the BSO, and the orchestra plays wonderfully for him. The rest of the performances fall somewhere in between these extremes. They will all remain controversial, I imagine, but there's a great deal of enjoyment to be had here if you know what you are in for.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Bernstein was an interpretive conductor. This is a performance which makes an event out of the 2nd symphony. The Breitkopf and Hartel score includes a duration of 45 minutes under the scoring page. Bernstein's performance is not far off. As personal as his intrepretation is (including a few changes in dynamics), most of Sibelius' tempo markings are meticulously followed. Molto largamente, Andante sostenuto, Poco allegro, Allegro, are tempo markings which appear in the 2nd movement - all are followed. Bernstein rigorously applies the 'Tempo Andante, ma rubato' to the eight-note (3/8), not the quarter. As a result, the 2nd movement is taken at a slower pace. But the pacing is entirely logical within that context. Careful listeners will also notice that one measure of the 3rd movement Vivacissimo (taken in 1 - one of the fastest on record) equals exactly one quarter note of the tempo in the finale. These correspondences (and there are many) give cohesiveness to the structure of the work.

The 2nd movement, one of the great tragic symphonic utterances, and the finale, one of the most uplifting in the repertoire, are perfectly realized in this great performance. Absolutely not to be missed.
