Notes & Reviews:

"...[Drahos] reading vividly recalls Weingartner's 1935 performance with the VPO on Preiser: fast, concise, yet flexible, supple, and expressive in its rhythmic pulse. It is an excellent up-to-date demonstration of that style - sleek, smoothly refined, and well-proportioned. The Hungarian orchestra plays splendidly, the horns in III sounding richer and more opulent than in Masur's set."McKelvey, A.R.G.
