Notes and Editorial Reviews

R E V I E W S

"Plenty of vitality...big string melodies blossoming voluptuously, the slow movement, after a beguiling opening clarinet, has a climax of spacious intensity, its power almost overwhelming...a most satisfying account...richness, brilliance and weight." -- Penguin Guide (3 stars)

"In this great Symphony he emphasizes the Tchaikovskian inheritance, …a spacious reading on the biggest scale, the ebb and flow of rubato and tension….always spontaneously convincing helped by the spectacularly ample recording with full bass and sumptuous strings. The brooding opening…under-pinned with Russian melancholy, immediately sets the romantic feeling." -- Gramophone
