Oliver Kurz said:

Interpretation:
A vivid, pusate and homogenic recording, which does not reveal its age.
The tempi are fluent and what impresses me most is the way the musicians give variety to the dynamics. In my view this recording reflects as well the zest for live as the inwardness of the music in a perfect way. Great!

Sound:
Clear, direct, dynamic and well balanced.
