This is a symphony brimming with heroism, positivism and life-affirming qualities. It also represents Sibelius’ ongoing efforts to synthesize the symphonic process, to arrange the development of musical ideas and motifs over long time spans into a logical, coherent, all-embracing musical architecture. The result is totally satisfying.
