Notes & Reviews:

"...with a superbly vivid Fifteenth (from 1974), generally hard-driven a la Mravinsky but far more convicingly poised. The first movement goes at a frightening lick, deserting the toy shop for the asylum, the slow movement lacks only the very last ounce of desolation and the finale, always intelligently conceived, is suitably emotive at the close. The sound has immediacy and just enough depth." - Gramophone
