Everything just sounds right – Kondrashin’s tempos, use of rubato, rhythmic flow, changes in volume, etc. He was very much at ease with this symphony, and his mastery of it is quite apparent. I have heard other versions of it, such as that of Jarvi, and none come close to Kondrashin. His performance just sounds best. Although the symphony itself mystifies me, the performance does not. Kondrashin’s recording is excellent.
