New York Times - Top Ten Recordings for 2001
Anne Midgette, the New York Times
Benjamin Zander/Philharmonia Orchestra
Recording: Mahler: Symphony No. 4
Mr. Zander both gives the music room to breathe and makes it so clear that it's as if all four movements were fitted out with verbal texts: Mahler to sink your teeth into. A second CD, on which Mr. Zander discusses the piece, is a nice additional touch.
