In Singapore, BIS discs can be found or ordered from HMV (The Heeren, City Link).
The Inkpot Sibelius Nutcase does not visit HMV very often. When he does, he has the tendency to reduce the amount of Sibelius CDs they are carrying at anytime by about 5-10%.

Hello. Sorry this comment bears no relevance to the above record review. Does anyone know the meaning of the (Italian?0 musical term that is abbreviated to “gest.” I saw it on the score of the Sib. 4th symphony, directly at bassoons and horns, and offset a few bars later by “nat.”, I assume naturalamente or something like that. I know the “gest.” direction coincides with some remarkable snarling sounds in the brass near the beginning of the first mobvement. Thanks to anyone who can enlighten me.
Alan, gest. probably means ‘stopped’, and nat. ‘naturalmente’- wrt this without stops.
