"In sheer naturalness of utterance, unforced expressiveness and the superlatively disciplined response of the orchestral playing, the Gewandhaus set has a good deal to offer. The first two symphonies are attractively fresh, with the slow movement of the Second memorable. The Eroica is uncommonly fine, particularly in its nobly paced slow movement which is totally free of excessive emphasis in expression. In the Fourth Symphony Masur is particularly successful, and the Gewendhaus orchestra respond with marvellously alert playing. In the slow movement Masur brings great imagination and poetry to his reading; the homogenous, cultured orchestral sound of the Gewendhaus Orchestra and its rhythmic resilience and vitality are in themselves a sense of pleasure. ...the first set of these three Duos is certainly recommendable."--Penguin Guide
