Notes & Reviews:

"Gu¨nter Wand was for me an outstanding personality in the German music world. In his final period in Hamburg with the NDR Symphony, I was privileged to accompany him right up to the end. There were many moving concerts I shall never forget. One should always be very careful when one speaks of "great musical moments", but the description undoubtedly fits the concerts given by Gu¨nter in his old age. They were indeed great moments, unforgettable for those who experienced them." - Rolf Beck, Director of the Orchestra and Chorus Department of Norddeutscher Rundfunk

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
This is a set with many lovely moments. The First begins very briskly. The Third and Fourth are better all around. This is a good release. The Third and Fourth are very fine.
