In 2015, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Jean Sibelius’s birth, Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker presented not only Sibelius’s symphonies live at the Berlin Philharmonie, but also released the cycle in an exclusive edition. The Washington Post labelled the recordings “a vivid portrait of probably the world’s best orchestra at the peak to which its longtime music director has brought it.” Sir Simon Rattle writes of his work with the Berliner Philharmoniker: "This orchestra thinks and responds incredibly quickly, every single musician. They're never standing still. Maybe it's because this city, Berlin, functions that way too. With the Berlin Philharmonic you can be sure that the musicians are giving their all – always. They come to the platform as chamber musicians. And they don't ask 'how' – they ask 'why'. That's why I love working with them.”

The edition is now being released in a lower-priced new edition on 5 CDs/SACDs which can be played on any CD or SACD player. The edition includes a high-quality slipcase and a comprehensive booklet. The new release enables playback with either the best CD sound or – when used as SACD – in high-resolution audio quality and in surround sound.
