I also like that CD for 'The Bronze Horseman Suite'.
Surely BBC recordings series is the most complete.IMHO sound quality isn't at height.

I just thought that I could make Ilya Muromets without the 3rd movement. That's the most recommendable 'excision' I could think of when this symphony is concerned.  8)

The other movements are just splendid as they are.
Give us something else; give us something new; for Heaven's sake give us something bad, so long as we feel we are alive and active and not just passive admirers of tradition!
