Notes and Editorial Reviews

[T]here's nothing small-scaled about the music making... Jansons maintains a high standard of excellence...with his lean, taut approach that emphasizes musical values as well as emotional impact. This is the middle ground between the sheer hysteria evoked by Kondrashin and Mravinsky and the dark warmth found in Haitink's Concertgebouw Orchestra recordings. But Jansons' readings are compelling in their own right, reaching a level of intensity that is often gripping... The Philadelphia Orchestra plays marvelously in [Symphony no 11]...
