Notes & Reviews:

"The depth of Young's interpretation and the high quality of the Hamburg Philharmonic's playing should draw listeners to this classic, because both combine to make it an exceptional listening experience. Young doesn't fall back on any predecessor's readings but comes to the music with fresh ideas of pacing and phrasing, and offers her personal grasp of the First's intellectual and emotional development. Add to this the fine clarity, glowing colors, depth of ensemble, and the richness of Oehms' reproduction, so this recording is in many ways a continuation of Young's outstanding work in the field of late Romantic symphonic music. Highly recommended." -All Music Guide

"This performance gets your attention from the opening moments...[Conductor Young] has an excellent command of pace and orchestral dynamics. The music is beautifully shaped, with surges and relaxations perfectly calculated...In short, this is excellent in every way, and I urge you to hear it."-American Record Guide
