Notes & Reviews:
The London Symphony Orchestra, winners of the 2004 Gramophone Award for Lifetime Achievement, play with unmatched strength and glowing timbre. "Davis's performance seethed with vitality and exuberance. The Scherzo was hair-raising, the outer movements by turns magisterial and intimate. This [is] Davis and the LSO at their best." - The Guardian
BBC Music Magazine
Colin Davis'sà reading of the first movement is marvellously infectious: the slight rasp added to the opening rhythmic figure and the waltz-like treatment of the lyrical moments are wholly convincing. There is a wealth of ravishing detail in the slow movement and the finale is magnificently structured.
A performance of great clarity and details which also connect with the earthier qualities of Dvorßk's most rhythmically exciting symphony.
An admirable and infectious performance. Sir Colin Davis and his fine players are wonderfully idiomatic and offer a performance of exceptional clarity of detail.
