Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, Klaus Mäkelä

Sibelius: CD


The Chief Conductor of Oslo Philharmonic and Music Director of Orchestre de Paris, Klaus Mäkelä announces his debut album; the complete Sibelius symphonies plus the fragments of the unfinished 8th and his last symphonic poem Tapiola. The orchestra has been performing the music of Jean Sibelius for over 100 years, with the composer himself conducting three concerts of his music in 1921. Together they form the Scandinivian Trio.

"Sibelius' music is in Mäkelä's DNA and it was exciting to watch him bring a fresh perspective to the work.” - Bachtrack
