Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Ashkenazy's performance with the brilliant Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra is just as potent and passionate [as Talich]: from the catastrophic climax of the first movement through the tragic beauty of the two slow movements and the sardonic Scherzo, to the beatific closing of the Finale, this "Asrael" is quite compelling and convincing, and it is a worthy successor to the acclaimed rendition by Talich and the lesser versions of other Czech contenders. Highly recommended." -All Music Guide
