. . . [this recording invests] significance in each phrase, employing a vast range of dynamics, from a magical pianissimo to the most powerful fortissimo, while paying attention to the musical narrative . . . There's an overwhelming sense of melancholy and emotional intensity to the first climax of the second movement Allegretto. The Berlin Phil responds to his every nuance . . . the recorded sound has great presence.
