Notes & Reviews:
Sunday Times, 10th April 2016
This is an affectionate account, far removed from Gergiev's full-on intensity with the LSO, but alert, almost balletic, rising to an emotional climax in the great Adagio. The finale is an exhilarating whirlwind of a dance.
Gramophone Magazine, June 2016
This much sought-after maestro takes the first movement broadly enough to lend credence to what might seem mere ideological posturing...There are a few tank-like manoeuvres en route...but everything works in context.
