Notes & Reviews:
As sheer sound the performance is a magnificent one: the marvellous power and sheen of the Concertgebouw's brass and the richness and delicacy of their strings are outstandingly well rendered by an exceptionally natural and atmospheric recording.
BBC Music Magazine, March 2015
The passage of time hasn't dimmed the powerful impact of this outstanding performance. Haitink projects all the drama and emotional ambiguity without sacrificing symphonic cogency.
