Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Kees Bakels' serenely expressive account of the 'Pastoral' has moments of drama to heighten its quiet intensity of atmosphere. There is much lovely orchestral playing, with the soloists in the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra very sympathetic to the music's subtle, lyrical resonance... The performance [of the 6th] overall has plenty of life and vigour, and Bakels sustains the epilogue with an ethereal, glowing pianissimo. First-rate Naxos recording in both works." -Penguin Guide
