    1. (Their 11th, “The Year 1905”, in particular is the best I’ve ever heard. I’ve heard Haitink/Amsterdam, dePriest/Helsinki, Stokowski/Houston, Bychov/Berlin, Slatkin/Chicago on the radio, and a live performance by Rostropovich/Chicago. This one outdoes them all.)

    2. One must not have listened to Kondrashin, Mravinsky, Sanderling or Haitink before.. What catches first is modern sound but after this good surprise boredom quickly happens due mostly to much slow tempi (1st, 4th, 15th for instance). But I must confess that in this way the 10th is really accomplished. Otherwise just compare the great 4th with Kondrashin/Melodiya : despite older sound this last one is much more captivating.

  1. I just listened to the 1st symphony and was blown away by the multi-channel sound. The performance is excellent too. The slowness of the 3rd movement provides a nice contrast to the other movements. I think the performance is spot on. Will be downloading some of the others when I have the time.
