Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

With characteristic boldness, Georg Tintner opts here to record the very rare first version, far more expansive than the final, revised version normally heard. Tintner holds the vast structure together masterfully; even though his speeds in the three expanded movements are daringly slow the concentration of the performance, with dynamic contrasts heightened, never falters for a moment. The slow movement too is rapt and dedicated, with pianissimos of breathtaking delicacy. The Scherzo is then fast and fierce, before the spacious account of the finale. Tintner in every way justifies his daring and revelatory choice of text.
