What the Critics Are Saying
"It's hard to think of a more distinguished Beethoven cycle by an American orchestra since the legendary Toscanini traversal of 1939... [Vänskä] and his wonderfully committed musicians have staked out a claim not merely for excellence, but for greatness."
William Trotter, American Record Guide
