Notes & Reviews:

"The reason to drop everything and buy this release right now is Haitink's stunning 6...Haitink demonstrates once and for all that the composer knew precisely what he was doing. His impassioned reading of I is filled with unrest and tragedy...uncovers the bitter irony and terror lurking just beneath the surface...of II...Haitink outdoes even Bernstein and Boult in this music, laughing louder--and crying more bitterly--than either of them." -Godell, ARG
