Fanfare, May 2016

These performances seem to be influenced by the HIP movement, with lighter textures and lithe phrasing though vibrato is used by the strings. …Jansons’s instincts for judicious tempos are on good display. Despite the fact that these performances were captured during live performances on this band’s tour of Japan, the playing of the Bavarian Radio Symphony is precise and bold with nary a flub to be heard. © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review

MusicWeb International, November 2015

Mariss Jansons’ approach to these symphonies is conventional but with a supremely high quality of performance from his orchestra… The first movement of the Seventh Symphony bursts both with rhythmic energy as it does with refinement. Dynamics are keenly observed and a characteristic depth and balance of sonority in the orchestral sound invites you back for more. © 2015 MusicWeb International Read complete review
