'Dohnányi maintained a fine balance ... between exuberance and control'.
'Power was full of energy, itching to join in with the orchestra'.
'Steinbacher’s performance ... was one of self-contained simplicity'.
'The finale was full of Beethovenian joy and life force, and Dohnányi encouraged the brass to shine, bringing this commanding performance to a rousing finish'.
