Notes and Editorial Reviews
"An impressive performance, played very finely by the LPO...Tennstedt shows us the length of Mahler's vision."

-- Gramophone Reviewing Symphony no 3

"Tennstedt's is as spirited and unaffected a reading as any I've heard...Tennstedt's performance is, in sum, as direct, as specific, as unsentimental, and as affecting as a well-told fairy tale. The digital recording is pleasingly clear, whilst the playing of the LPO mellow in manner but wonderfully sharp in points of detail and style."

-- Gramophone [4/1983] Reviewing Symphony no 4
