Notes and Editorial Reviews

Vladimir Ashkenazy...is outstandingly good in all the quieter and more restrained passages but, whether through anxiety not to treat the music as a blockbuster and nothing more, he holds back in the big climaxes, such as the sunrise and the view from the summit, where we really should be swept away by the sheer splendour of the sound. Nevertheless, this is an interpretation which can hold its place among the best... The solo oboist is a poetic artist indeed and the trumpet section never seem to need to take a breath! As for the richness and range of the strings, they are in the Cleveland tradition of Szell. Also on the disc is a lively, goodhumoured account of Till Eulenspiegel to which the excellence of the recording contributes its own Read more sheen.

-- Gramophone [12/1989]
