Reviews

‘Jessye Norman sings magnificently, with what appears to be effortless agility and with a particularly beautiful quality in mezza voce, and she is most sympathetically partnered by Hugh Maguire and Alfred Brendel respectively …  A striking performance of the G minor symphony: appropriately taut and nervous in the quick movements, and with an almost chamber-musical intimacy and refinement in the Andante. The performance of the C major Concerto could hardly be bettered.’ Gramophone, November 1978
