Reviews:

The Berlin Staatskapelle rises to the challenge magnificently. Quite simply the playing is awesome, not just in terms of its technical excellence, but also in the great subtlety of nuance and tonal variety. Barenboim's extremely detailed interpretation is unashamedly theatrical in conception.

– BBC Music Magazine

The
Read more camerawork is gratifyingly unfussy, and Barenboim builds the structural edifices patiently without letting the music sag or sound predictable.
