Notes & Reviews:

"Whatever Bernstein does, he really means it, and his ability to communicate his intense feelings about the music to the orchestra, and thus to the audience, is quite remarkable. It is manifest not only in the energetic sweep of each performance, but also in a hundred tiny felicities." - Gramophone

"Newcomers to this cycle have a treat in store, for these are no less than good performances, and some of them (Nos. 3, 4, 6, 7, and 9) rank with the best available. Even Bernstein's No. 5, which always came in for criticism as a result of its point-making in the first movement, sounds simply characterful at this late date... when all is said and done you simply can't go wrong with this set." -ClassicsToday
