Notes and Editorial Reviews

"On the face of it, Rattle, with his iconoclastic dynamism, his experience with period instruments and his eye for scholarly detail, is worlds apart from the VPO, which under certain other conductors still plays the Classical repertoire with serene indifference to historical practice. The confrontation is a fruitful one, however, and the players respond to Rattle’s hypercharged sense of urgency with a performance of white-hot intensity, the final March bursting with irrepressible energy."
