Notes & Reviews:
The reading and the playing remain as persuasive as ever ... [Solti] has dropped back the pace of the scherzo a notch or two with beguiling effect; the reading is now all one could ask for... the strings are first-rate in the "Wayfarer" music ... the new version has a clear edge in both playing and recording in the symphony's peroration ... the Chicago players give Solti everything he asks for in sonority, power, and rhythmic attack" ... as an interpreter of this symphony Solti has lost little of his old flair and insight.
...charm and playfulness in this Wunderhorn work emerge delightfully; one of Solti's happiest records, tinglingly fresh, with perfectly chosen speeds.
