Energy and power coupled with finesse, dramatic flair, brilliant articulation, and that Levine je ne sais quoi makes this 1983 recording one to treasure.
"The miraculous thing about this prismatic music … is that despite the frequency with which it is played and recorded, it continues to yield new facets to insightful and inventive performers…. Messrs. Levine and Bernstein each take full advantage of the Viennese orchestra's uniquely rich sound, but they exploit that sonic opulence in very different ways: Mr. Bernstein aims for breadth and grandeur; Mr. Levine retains the orchestra's warmth, but draws a leaner and trimmer sound … ravishingly played."—NYTimes
