Notes & Reviews:

"This performance also is extremely slow--more than 90 minutes in fact--with a finale that seems to go on forever. But the playing of the Staatskapelle Dresden has so much more color, rhythm, and clarity that it makes all the difference. The first movement in particular now has shape and structure, with real impact at the climaxes. The first scherzo limps along with appropriate awkwardness, and Sinopoli successfully differentiates the three basic tempos... Certainly these highly individual interpretations won't be to all tastes, but especially in the Mahler Sinopoli's quirks never turn into annoying mannerisms, and the superiority of the orchestral execution goes a long way toward selling the concept. Yes, he takes some big risks, but here at least they pay off." -Classics Today
