This third recording from Oleg Caetani and the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi was already presented on CD from ARTS. The position of the press and the critics were overwhelming.
"...the powerful conducting of Caetani reflects best Russian school" Le Monde de la musique
"The Ninth receives a superb performance, virtuosic, humorously pointed and perfectly scaled to its materials" Turok's Choice
"..these musicians believe in the music.... the gloom and defiance of the Tenth and the sarcasm of the Ninth are most tellingly conveyed... Don't miss it!" Fanfare
"These Italians get it right. This is one of the better 9s.......a very good performance" American Record Guide
"The first movement [of the 9th] is adorably funny and reminds with pure lust of good Italian comedy; it is even Fellini-like ... Exciting and with suspense" Pizzicato
"This version exploded into my face ... Every player seems to be a soloist ... An orgy of colours" classicstodayfrance.com
