Quote from: techniquest on June 23, 2007, 02:00:24 AMOK, one of the most done-to-death opening sections, but the rest of it is really rather fascinating. With such large forces though, and so many recordings, it's difficult to know which one to go for. I need to hear all the percussion (including the tam-tam), I need audible tubas, expressive soloists and a choir that sounds big and together.I have the old Ozawa recording on RCA on vinyl which is wonderful, and the Hickox / LSO recording on CD (Regis) which I'm not struck with so I want to replace the CD.Has anyone heard the new Marin Alsop recording on Naxos?

Quote from: knight on June 23, 2007, 02:30:23 AMWell, I will leave it for you to somehow contact Previn, Pritchard and several lesser conductors and you can explain it to them; as they to a man encouraged the maximum sound out of the orchestra and we had to shout some sections to be heard. Pritchard in particular, normally a very musical musician, drove it headlong at max speed in the Tavern scene. Mike

Quote from: Tsaraslondon on June 23, 2007, 02:45:12 AMIf only for Lucia Popp's divine singing!
Quote from: Marc on June 23, 2007, 09:54:10 AMSay no more; though I do not have that one.But I do have the Ponnelle DVD, with the Munich 'Rundfunk Team', Lucia Popp, John van Kesteren and Hermann Prey, conducted by Kurt Eichhorn.Watching that film, it's back to the Middle Ages .... the Seventies again! It's fun, and of course Lucia Popp is in great form! Well, Prey and Van Kesteren aren't bad either, I admit.
