Notes & Reviews:

"...There is...an exceptional clarity and a most attractive sheen to the sound achieved by his [Christian Gansch's] production, and it represents a decided step forward by the standards of previous DG recordings...Levine has also succeeded in molding his Met Orchestra into an ensemble of rare quality, and one that is creating an increasing stir on the concert platform these days..." -Jocobson, Fanfare
