Review by nabokov June 27, 2003 (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
This is an excellent disc. The performance of the Festive Overture has magnificent sweep and is marvellously recorded. The Symphony is more calculated but that is certainly to the advantage of its coherence. The orchestral playing is very committed. Ashkenazy is among the strongest advocates of this symphony and there is a ‘live’ atmosphere to this recording, even to the extent that one can occasionally detect some minor lapses of ensemble.
