Notes & Reviews:

"...The number of recordings currently available of these two works - even leaving complete cycles of the Schubert symphonies out of account - has gone far past the hundred mark. Yet I cannot recall a single one, even among the various Furtwangler versions, that is as comprehensively successful as this Telarc disc..." -Jacobson, Fanfare

Classic FM Magazine
Mackerras offers a crisply vivid interpretration [of No. 9], classily played in period style by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

Gramophone Magazine
Here are all the nuances of tempo and dynamics in performances which, though hardly suggesting a switch to a 'post-Wagnerian' viewpoint, provide a great deal more than mere textual, textural and timbral interest: they engage on an expressive level.
