“sings the socks off most versions and stands out from the crowd. I guarantee this will rekindle that first fresh shimmer of discovery, that tremor of the heart, that spine-tingling indicator that tells you what it was to live the recreation of this music.” - MusicWeb

“plenty of vitality...big string melodies blossoming voluptuously, the slow movement, after a beguiling opening clarinet, has a climax of spacious intensity, its power almost overwhelming....a most satisfying account” - Penguin Guide 3 stars

“in this great Symphony he emphasizes the Tchaikovskian inheritance ... a spacious reading on the biggest scale, the ebb and flow of rubato and tension ... always spontaneously convincing helped by the spectacularly ample recording with full bass and sumptuous strings. The brooding opening... under-pinned with Russian melancholy, immediately sets the romantic feeling” - Gramophone
