A real treat!!,
This review is from: Symphony No 4 / Symphony No 7 (Audio CD)
WOW, I have to say I am beyond impressed with this SACD. I hate to admit that I have sort of become disenchanted with Paavo Jarvi in the past year or two with the sometimes killer/sometimes dull recordings he has done with Cincinnati for Telarc. However, right from the start this recording grabbed me by the ears and never let go. Sheer excitement, passion, intensity...it is all there...in droves. Very impressive and best of all, the band from Bremen sounds like they are having quite a bit of fun!!
The sound also blew me away, and I quickly learned why when I saw that the fabulous gang from Polyhymnia (think Pentatone and Caro Mitis) was the team in the control room...way to go guys!!!
