“After Gergiev, this might seem staid - but is builds into a remarkable reading… Haitink's finale belies the slowness of its pacing, its accumulation of inner tensions the fruit of a lifetime's experience with this score. There are more splenetic, precise accounts available, few which convey its burden of care in quite such magisterial fashion.”
