Reviews

‘Solti’s approach […] is nearest to that of Barbirolli, in its emphasis on emotional and nervous intensity, though the result is quite different … The [Rondo-Burleske] is taken dangerously fast, but it is brought off by some brilliant orchestral playing … In the Adagio finale, on the other hand, the extreme contrast between the two elements of passion and passionlessness is most beautifully handled … All in all, a superb issue of the symphony.’ Gramophone, October 1967
