Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Revisiting Barenboim’s pristine, elevated account of [one] of the most popular works in the series occasions expected nostalgia..."

"A reminder of the dramatic and lyrical qualities of the young Barenboim, with [a] loving, if leisurely slow movement. The wind section of the ECO shines throughout."
