Sibelius discography: help wanted

discs

A Sibelius discography is being compiled that will be made available via this website.

In the interests of making this discography as complete as possible, all Sibelius enthusiasts and Sibelius One members are invited to send in details of recordings in their collection and we shall add the information to what is already on file here.

At present work is in a preliminary stage. As soon as possible we shall make available a file listing those recordings already included, and alternative methods of submitting information.

In the meantime, if you would like to send details of your discs already, we would ask for as much as possible of the following information to be included:

  • Work title and opus/JS/HUL number
  • If only part of a work is performed, please specify which part(s)
  • Soloist(s)
  • Ensemble/orchestra
  • Chorus
  • Conductor
  • Recording date
  • Live recording?
  • Release date
  • Record label and catalogue number
  • Format (e.g. LP, CD, mono/stereo)
  • Country of release
  • Any other relevant information

Please send the information to Ian Maxwell (click here).

Thank you very much for your help!

Or better still, post it as a password-protected Google doc that members can update?

    As you are no doubt aware, there are online resources available that could be trawled for information. As examples, Archiv Music and Discogs list 853 and 829 Sibelius recordings, respectively, the former being those currently available for purchase in the USA, the latter including many earlier vinyl recordings.
