Very fine renditions of all three! The Sibelius 7th stands with the best!
Here is yet another wonderful Reference Recordings release recorded by Keith Johnson in 2016. The Kansas City Symphony under conductor Michael Stern was an excellent orchestra. Their albums made with Reference Recordings, including this one, are top drawer and all are highly recommended.
Included here are Samuel Barber’s First Symphony (In One Movement), Op. 9 (1936); Jean Sibelius’ Symphony No. 7 in C major, Op. 105 (1924); and Alexander Scriabin’s Le poème de l’extase (The Poem of Ecstasy), Op. 54 (1905-1908). As the title of the album states, these are all one movement symphonies of 19-23 minutes each. But packed into these single movement marvels is a wealth of creative music to explore and savor.

And it’s a good ‘un.
