Thomas Sønderga°rd’s opening concert with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, at which Jean Sibelius was the highlight, was hailed a triumph by audiences and press alike and marked a new era for the orchestra. Building on this triumphant debut the 2013 BBC Proms saw Sønderga°rd and a reinvigorated BBC NOW win over the critics with their charismatic performance and formidable interpretations. With their nationalist themes Symphonies 2 & 7 were perfect repertoire for Sønderga°rd and his orchestra to make their symphonic recording debut. Sibelius’s Second Symphony remains one of the great Finnish composer’s most popular works. The Seventh Symphony is notable for being a one-movement symphony and is completely original in form, subtle in its handling of tempi, individual in its treatment of key and is considered Sibelius’ most remarkable compositional achievement. ‘At the end of his first season as principal conductor, Sønderga°rd showed just what a rapport he already has with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.’ (The Guardian)
