(Section B) led by Thomas Peatfield
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Sibelius's Seventh Symphony, composed in 1925, is perhaps the most introspective of all his works. Although cast in one long movement the music falls into four definite sections corresponding to the usual four movements of the classical symphony. But into this single movement is packed enough thought to fill out any symphony of normal length.
