Notes & Reviews:

"Bernstein's apocalyptic "Unfinished" has always packed a considerable wallop. No one has ever matched its searing intensity or edge-of-the-seat drama...The final bars are as gorgeous--and as devastating--as anything ever preserved on disc...Bernstein brings welcome energy and spirit to the proceedings [of the 9th Symphony], and the score's many delicious melodies flow like quicksilver." -Godell, ARG
