Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Newly available on a single CD, Rattle's superb interpretation now sweeps the board. . . . [I]n terms of passion and commitment, the Bournemouth band is second to none . . . . Rattle's achievement is in a special class, empowering the music with such emotional clout that you forget the scholarly debate. . . . [T]his is music-making of extraordinary fervour. Mahler/Cooke's unexpectedly positive valediction can border on the sentimental. Not so here, where the final 'sigh' is almost unbearable—heart-rending stuff which also carries the structural burden of the entire symphony. . . . With excellent sonics . . . this is an essential purchase." -- Gramophone "Newly available on a single CD, Rattle's superb interpretation now sweeps the board. . . .
