Michael Scott Rohan
Gramophone, August 2000

"Bob Coles's direction is given to dramatic jump-cuts with the music, not only appropriate instruments, but to Barenboim. We see a lot of his gestures and expressions from the orchestra's viewpoint; and this, for me, was where the difference lay. Being able to follow his beat-and brooding countenance!-does make his phrasing seem more natural and involving; and, in the excellent recording, so does one's enhanced sense of being present at a live occasion."

Barnes & Noble

"It's clear from this expansive and intensely expressive performance that the Chicagoans remain master Mahlerians."
