-------------------------------

The Sixth Symphony is structurally and harmonically under tighter control than the fifth, keeping the listener's attention, again with its mischievous lightness [listen -- track 6, 0:00-0:52] and the heroic and energetic optimism of its finale [listen -- track 9, 0:00-0:59].

Technically this is a bright and clean recording with excellent wind playing; musically it should prove pleasurably interesting to those keen to unearth the unfamiliar legacy of 20th century music.
