Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording received a 1998 "Critic's Choice" award from Gramophone
magazine.
REVIEWS:
American Record Guide (11-12/97, pp.86-87) - "...Although the lower strings of the Moscow Symphony evince some strain, the other players acquit themselves well enough, and the trombones are impressive. Yablonsky occasionally lags behind both Demchanko and Svetlanov, especially in the rather leaden entrance of Mark Antony, but the opportunity to expand greatly on the standard suite handily compensates for any interpretive shortcomings..."
