Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Formidable. Abbado's reading is far more Traditionsgebunden. The Vienna Philharmonic respects this; and the playing, in particular in the great slow movement, is very fine... Moments of careful rest are offset by modest accelerations. In the finale, Abbado's reading is both pointed and (in the A flat chorale subject) broadly sung. The end, too, is strong and incisive... Impressive..."
-- Richard Osborne, Gramophone [5/1994]
