From the gilded and polished Baroque adornments down to Franz Welser‑Möst’s jet cufflinks and the second flautist’s nose stud, there is always plenty to look at in this DVD…Welser‑Möst gives special acknowledgement to the Cleveland Orchestra’s principal horn at the end, when a standing ovation from the audience seems the entirely fitting response to a superbly judged musical and visual venture.
…the sound of the Cleveland Orchestra is superb, refined in detail and matching the grandeur of surroundings that furnish a glorious acoustical bloom. Welser‑Möst, with calm control, is a master of the symphony’s structural and emotional trajectory. © 2013 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
