“Yes, it’s just a mono sound recording, it’s shot in black and white and the Royal Festival Hall acoustic is not the best. Nevertheless the fifty-year old Giulini draws out a powerfully thrilling and involving performance...He’s energetic and animated, his eyes ablaze, conveying total commitment...An affecting and dramatic historic mono monochrome recording.”
