Notes and Editorial Reviews

Szell and his Clevelanders are shown at their finest here. The sparkling account of the Haffner is exhilarating, and the performance of the last symphon[y is] equally polished and strong. Yet there is a tranquil feeling to both Andantes that show Szell as a Mozartian of striking sensibility and finesse"
