The review is enthusiastic about both editions, but reserves its highest praise for the Ninth. Thus, it's logical to assume the rosette was for that production, not the Fourth. My apologies to readers.
As for the quote from the PG, a fuller version reads: '...both sound splendid in this current paired reissue, with glorious strings and richly sonorous brass". It's therefore clear that this accolade belongs to the Fourth as well as the Ninth.
