HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Decca/London) Dmitri Shostakovich – Symphony No. 5 (Haitink)

front-small-boxsetI’m no musicologist, but I think this is a remarkable recording of Shostakovich’s 5th symphony. This one has overall better production than Bernstein’s New York Philharmonic recording under Sony. Plus, Bernstein tends to conduct under some sort of emotional influence, Haitink does not. But that’s just my humble opinion. All in all, this is an “edge of your seat” kind of recording; loud, aggressive, and wicked! Thank you Maestro Haitink, Royal Concertgebouworkest, and the DECCA team.
