Christopher Howell
MusicWeb International, January 2009

It is very clear at the beginning that Celibidache at around 82 was still totally in command…the gestures are still clear and detailed, interspersed with avuncular smiles of encouragement and the odd grimace. “Alborada” and “Prélude” can be ranked with the best Celibidache in the sense that I found my body-clock adjusting to his own timescale and in a sense not noticing the slow tempi—typical “normal” timings for these two pieces would be around 07:30 and 09:30…Students of the Celibidache phenomenon, as I have suggested, will find at least the first two items of the programme fully up to their highest expectations.
