Notes & Reviews:
Gramophone Magazine, April 2012
Levine's 1989 Salzburg account would seem to have been fashioned with the delicate sensibilities of the glamorous festival audience in mind. It's a reading which dutifully pushes most of the right buttons but never the music's extremes. Everything is kept on a pretty even keel...Of course, the Vienna strings offer an echt Viennese account of the Andante.
Recording information: Groáes Festspielhaus, Salzburg (08/19/1989).
