"Brisk tempos, wicked string and woodwind attacks keep this affectionate version on its toes. Without preliminaries, the Finale erupts out of the opening motifs, a series of punctuated lightning bolts interrupted by woodwinds' pipings and strings' nostalgia." (AudAud on Brahms Symphony No 2)

"Brisk tempos, wicked string and woodwind attacks keep this affectionate version on its toes. Without preliminaries, the Finale erupts out of the opening motifs, a series of punctuated lightning bolts interrupted by woodwinds' pipings and strings' nostalgia. The development section has us plummeting through space again, only to find brief respite before a voluptuous rush to judgment, the stretti having mounted to a thick paste. And at long last, the coda tumbles its wayward course to a brilliantly graduated conclusion, which had me, too, conducting to the final beat." (AudAud on Brahms Symphony No 2)
