Notes & Reviews:
"Gergiev emphasizes the dramatic aspects of the work strongly, but also delivers the many contrasting quieter passages with touching gentleness. The impact of the big climaxes - and there are many - come across impressively in the live recording made last year at London’s Barbican." -John Sunier of Audiophile Audition (audaud.com)
Intensely theatrical... The sharp dynamic contrasts are well brought out in the first movement, with all the colourful woodwind writing well highlighted and pointed... [Larsson] is very expressive and beautifully supported by the orchestra.
The first and third movements climax in a dash to the finishing-line that has one pinned to one's seat. The finale has an immediacy and machismo you may or may not find at odds with its elevated spiritual character.
