Completed in 1924, Symphony No. 7 is notable for being a one-movement symphony, in contrast to the standard symphonic formula of four movements. It has been described as "completely original in form, subtle in its handling of tempi, individual in its treatment of key and wholly organic in growth" and "Sibelius's most remarkable compositional achievement".
Sibelius's 5th and 7th symphonies are featured on this CD, performed by the Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra led by Leif Segerstam. The 5th symphony is a powerful and quite beautiful work, while the one-movement 7th, Sibelius's final completed symphony, is intriguingly mysterious and possibly Sibelius's masterpiece. Sandwiched in between the symphonies is the lightweight but tuneful and engaging early Sibelius concert waltz, "Valse Triste".
