Down 26, to its lowest ever position. 3rd of 7 entries from Sibelius this year.

It's true to say that Sibelius never totally left his first love, the violin, behind though which explains why this concerto is the only one he wrote. How he would have loved to premiere it himself if only the performance technique had developed at the same pace as his compositional genius.
