Sheer vital energy with great brilliance. Rapturous sound with surging pulsating vitality. Great textual transparency especially in the woodwinds. The concept here is one of surging power and brilliance compared to for example Chailly's 7th with the RSO Berlin, which is much more romantically luxuriant and resplendent. Two entirely different approaches i.e. Wand vs. Chailly but both spectacular. A magnificent and brilliantly articulated performance. Magnificent recording. Surpasses Wand's other two recordings of the 7th. This is the one to have.
