Notes and Editorial Reviews

...the woodwind solos, again and again, have just an extra degree or two of character and distinction of phrasing; the violins show barely a trace of strain in those perilously exposed highlying phrases, the cellos have an absolutely secure expressive warmth, even at the extremes of their register: they in particular make the pas-de-deux, No. 36, a genuinely romantic, Tchaikovskyan adagio. ...Previn distils as much grace as swagger... [Previn]is in his element in this score, and he and the LSO revel in its grace and glitter.

-- Gramophone [12/1983]
