Notes and Editorial Reviews

Haitink's technique is beyond reproach and his interpretations are not only overwhelmingly passionate, they are deeply poetic and profoundly musical. The London Philharmonic, which has by now been playing this music for almost a century, clearly loves every note and performs with the fervor of true believers. EMI's sound is as good as digital sounds ever gets: clean, rich, and warm.

– James Leonard, All Music Guide
