Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Quite the most recommendable—and richest recorded—of all the many versions on the DG label. . . . The passion of the playing of the Philharmonia [is] recorded with the most satisfying opulence. So the necessary fluctuations in the great melody of the second subject have a natural, unselfconscious warmth." -- Edward Greenfield, Gramophone "Quite the most recommendable—and richest recorded—of all the many versions on the DG label. . . .
