Reviews

‘A delightful performance of the “Posthorn” Serenade. The tempos are crisp, the playing is elegant.’ High Fidelity

‘That excellent orchestra plays for [Jochum] as well as it ever has on records… From the standpoint of sound, both works enjoy perfect balances and, especially in stereo, a wonderful clarity.’ High Fidelity (Symphonies Nos. 36 & 38)

‘What is so splendid about [Jochum’s] Mozart – and it is splendid here once again – is its combination of firm classical strength with a deep affection devoid of the slightest affectation. The “Linz” Symphony is particularly outstanding.’ Gramophone, January 1966
