A relaxed approach pays dividends: from the start the new performances are less rigid, less strictly a tempo than the old ... the new disc shows how that makes a great deal of difference when rhythms in fast movements are sprung more persuasively, giving a sparkle to the music; and in the funeral march of the second movement of the Quintet there is a hushed tension, a sense of presence, that was far less evident before. In other words, the new disc conveys the clear feeling of live communication ... (and so) there is every advantage in this new disc, particularly when the recording is just as well balanced and vivid as the old. - Gramophone
