Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Jarvi succeeds in making out a more eloquent case for the revision of the Fourth Symphony than many of his predecessors. He also gives an exhilarating account of the Classical Symphony, one of the best on record."

-- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition]

"Jarvi's is an eloquent performance [of the 4th Symphony] and he secures excellent playing from the Scottish orchestra, both here and in the Classical Symphony, where the slow movement is gently lyrical and the finale attractively gay."

-- Gramophone [3/1986]
