Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mischa Maisky, a wonderful soloist in the Cello Concerto, plays with great eloquence and although there are moments of self indulgence, they do not seriously detract from one's pleasure and satisfaction. Some may find that he emotes too heavily at times: the soulful throb he produces when playing in sixths (bars 303-11) in the Langsam movement is an instance in point, but generally, this is a glorious performance.

-- Gramophone [11/1986]
