"Bernstein's electrifying account of No. 40 is keenly dramatic, individual and stylish... The Jupiter is even finer: it is exhilarating in its tensions..." -- The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs [2003/4 edition] "Bernstein's electrifying account of No. 40 is keenly dramatic, individual and stylish...

 Bernstein and Vienna a winning combo November 17, 2012 By James D. S. (Villa Hills, KY) See All My Reviews "When you have a world class orchestra and it's conducted by a world class conductor you expect great things to happen. Happily, this recording lives up to that equation. Mozart played gloriously by an ensemble who know what they are doing. You will find many recordings of these last symphonies of Mozart. Some are pedestrian, others exceptional. This one belongs in the latter catagory. A good choice if you are seeking a recording of these pieces. Highly recommended." Report Abuse
