Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine
The weighty approach works most convincingly in the Tragic Symphony.
Gramophone Magazine (Symphonies Nos. 4 & 8)
Mehta secures neat, articulate, musically fluent performances from his Israeli orchestra and the Decca engineers reproduce them with admirable lucidity and absence of fuss.
Gramophone Magazine (Symphony No. 3)
Mehta directs a performance well inside the Viennese tradition ... crisply pointed readings admirably suited to these youthful inspirations.
Ten recordings of classical masterpieces, ranging from Rimsky-Korsakov to Sibelius, performed under the baton of Ernest Ansermet and more, rereleased at an affordable price.
