Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Szell obviously loved the G major Symphony in particular. He opens the first movement... with an affectionate, expressive warmth. The slow movement is glorious: passionate, but also lyrically relaxed... Szell's New World Symphony is vividly dramatic, combining vitality, marvellous orchestral discipline and expressive resilience." – Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition] "Szell obviously loved the G major Symphony in particular.
