This installment in BIS' continuing series of recordings of Jean Sibelius' complete works should interest the composer's enthusiasts, but purely in terms of aesthetic quality, most of the music on these five discs of chamber music is exceedingly poor. All the pieces on the first three and a half discs are either juvenilia or early works written before Sibelius had found his voice. Works like the Suite for string trio and the Piano Quintet are tuneful and well crafted, while the works for brass ensemble, and, especially, the works for kantele, show a distinctly different side of the composer. For listeners interested only in music reflecting the character, skill, and depth of the mature composer, however, only the first four works on the fifth disc -- Malinconia, an extended fantasy for cello and piano of tremendous emotional power; The Lizard, two scenes of eerie incidental music for solo violin and small string ensemble; and the Four Pieces and Two Serious Melodies, lovely evocative miniatures for cello and piano -- are likely to inspire repeated hearings. As always in this series, the performers are uniformly excellent and whole-heartedly dedicated, and the sound quality is up to BIS' usual peerless standard of excellence.
