Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

BBC Music Magazine
Not only does Litton turn...limitations into values (stiffness becomes strength, academicism becomes technical wizadry and a source of delight), he incorporates them into an overall view of the Symphony....It's easy to see why any orchestra would play its heart out for a conductor of such musical intelligence.

Sunday Times
There is much to enjoy in both works, especially in a performance as spirited and fluent as that of the Bergen musicians, under their music director, Andrew Litton, with its luminous woodwind playing and crisp, elegant strings. Even second-rank Mendelssohn has that wonderful, effortless fleetness of foot.
