Review By WalesOnline,November 1990

" Superbly committed playing and an innate sense of style. These are splendid symphonies-No. 2 is quite well known and receives a bold performance. ... the strength of this orchestra lies in its exciting quality in the fully-scored passages. In No. 1, Gunzenhauser drives the music forcefully through the extensive Allegro of the first movement. The finale of No. 1 benefits from their strong, flexible tone - a real Russian-festival of a piece. ... The recording permits each instrumental section to strike through with forcefully, crisp timpani, clear, well-blended woodwind, and clearly-defined strings.
