Reviews

'The London Philharmonic continues to discover gold in its archive … The concert displays much of the skill that Tennstedt brought to the LPO: his control of large forces, the seemingly effortless way in which Bruckner’s music is held together: weighty but never pompous … The LPO itself produces a quality of sound that many orchestras would envy … Music to sink into; a definite best buy.'
Scotland on Sunday, 20 January 2008

'The surging excitement of the outer movements is as unforgettable as the radiance of the great central Adagio.'
Malcolm Hayes, Classic FM, February 2008

'There is dignity, elegance and majesty in the interpretation, and the LPO playing is unfailingly responsive.'
Michael Tumelty, Glasgow Herald, 9 February 2008

'This is an account of great individuality and cumulative power … The Scherzo and finale are both urgent and strongly projected and the playing is excellent from start to finish.'
International Record Review, February 2008

'Vital and often beautiful'
The Sunday Times, 2 March 2008
