Notes and Editorial Reviews

...Best is Symphony No. 15. Järvi ideally captures the first movement's mocking spirit, then turns on a dime to project the slow movement's initial dour despair, which then unleashes a musical torrent unrelenting in its ferocity. The Gothenburg Orchestra provides impassioned and sonorous playing from every section, just as it does in the mirror-image finale. This is a viscerally affecting, memorable performance, captured in vivid, well-balanced sound by DG.
