‘Järvi now directs a most dramatic and colourful live performance. This is the Concerto’s third complete recording … other versions having used chopped and reshaped finales: I doubt anyone who hears the powerful return of the opening theme in this new recording will ever want to hear any of these alternatives again.’ Daniel Jaffé
