Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mehta’s approach here is typically theatrical, with a dash of not unbecoming vulgarity, appropriately matched to the lurid brilliance of the New York Philharmonic brass. Right from the hard-as-nails opening trumpet solo, it is their contribution which gives this issue its real charisma.
