Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

The Naxos issue provides another bargain version. The playing is neat and fresh, with rhythms well pointed…dramatic passages such as the military trumpets and timpani of the Allegro con brio (No. 8) are very well caught, bringing out the panache of the playing. In the big Adagio (No. 5) the important cello solo confirms the quality of the Melbourne players.
