Notes and Editorial Reviews
Dohnanyi's outstandingly beautiful performance for Decca... [is] beautiful in orchestral texture...subtle in its pacing...and I shall return to it whenever I want a more comfortable perspective or a more Straussian view of the work (and the inclusion of a reliably decent account of Schoenberg's Erwartung makes it better value than its rivals).

-- Michael Oliver, Gramophone [2/1989]
