Korngold's Symphony in F# (Boston Review)

I had to rub my eyes several times reading this extended, glowingly positive review of the Berlin Philharmonic's performance of Erich Wolfgang Korngold's Symphony in F# in Boston a few days ago, especially as I recalled the first reviews accorded its premiere recording almost 50 years ago by the Munich Philharmonic under Rudolf Kempe (no less).

One of the most remarkable reviews of a Korngold work I have ever read, in more than half a century of research!
