“eminently recommendable account of Sibelius’s Second…. good, well-chosen tempos and no want of tenderness at the Andante sostenuto theme…. Mackerras holds the structure together...Ole Schmidt’s excellent Nielsen symphonies cycle long made me want to hear more of him on disc….” (c) Gramophone

“Sibelians need this disc. Schmidt’s Fifth could easily stand as the only version in someone’s collection. … Rob Barnett (MusicWeb International)
