„It is the most lightly, as in ineffably, characterized Mahler One I have heard since Kubelik´s”. Everything flows, moves forward without rush…And when he needs to Fischer pulls out the stops-a whole sequence of them as he magnificently marshals the final triumph. I don´t know a more convincing interpretation of those last pages… Masterly”
