 Pretty Standard April 5, 2012 By Richard H. (Glendale, AZ) See All My Reviews "I'm not a big Mendlessohn fan so getting all 5 symphonies in one place was a sensible approach. They are enjoyable and Haitink does a pretty good job. Perhaps I'm not a fair critic though since I really don't listen to this very often." Report Abuse
