Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
The Austrian take time to settle in Bernstein's own composition...but sit spellbound throughout the fiery, finally hell-for-leather interpretation of the Shostakovich...what a relief to revisit a rendering in which expressive distortions are perpetrated on musical grounds, rather than representing an attempt to dramatise extra-musical opinion!
