Quintettes 1&2 ... especially the first quintette is particularly beautiful and original .. and well-baked by these guys .. robust yet refined enough.

No doubt!

I love Sibelius recordings by Ashkenazy, Vänskä, Ormandy, and others -- but there's something special about Barbirolli's readings. 

For me, Barbirolli's Sibelius is like Kubelik's Mahler or Boult's Vaughan Williams.  Old standbys for good reason!  :)
