REVIEW:

The appearance of this performance on a major prestige label will surely prove one of the highlights of this, his centenary year. It takes a performance of fierce concentration and absolute dedication to ensure this music’s hold on an audience. The CBSO, with its newly appointed fireball Mirga Gražinyte-Tyla, is teamed up with Kremerata Baltica, lending extraordinary depth and power to the string sound. All in all, this has to be one of the
Read more most important symphonic releases of the year.
