This looks like his second recording, which was digital and recorded in 1981. His earlier version, recorded in 1966, is generally regarded as being better.

Yes.

When a friend of mine played this recording, we reached a place where all the horns are playing. I said to my friend, the horns are marked fortissimo in the score here. Does this sound fortissimo to you?

"Nope," says he....

Exactly

Incidentally, I haven't heard it yet but the Petrenko/Royal Liverpool 10th got rave reviews... have you heard it?

Cheers Karl, it is a very fine Pastoral symphony.

Another excellent performance is Jansons/Phila.

No question, outstanding in every way

There's a live Karajan recording from Moscow that's supposed to be even betterest!  I haven not encountered it.

EDIT: I should have looked on youtube.  Everything is on youtube:

Never heard of Ernst (1814-1865) before, but his music appears to have been recorded rather extensively. This CPO production is a generously filled 2 disc set currently selling for a song at JPC.

Virtuoso stuff with a fine ear for brilliant sonorities and caressing melodies. A huge fan of Paganini, Ernst could play his works by ear after attending a concert by the master. He was also a renowned violist, playing Harold in Italy under Berlioz in Brussels, Vienna, St-Petersburg and London. He was a member of the Beethoven Quartet Society of London, playing the viola with Wieniawski, Joachim (violins) and Piatti (cello). He championed Beethoven’s late quartets when they had not yet gained wide currency. Intimate with Wieniawski, Berlioz, Mendelssohn and regarded by Joseph Joachim as the greatest violinist of his era, his musical partners included Liszt, Chopin and Clara Schumann. He traveled Europe giving concerts before retiring due to illness.

It's a winner! Wonderful music, which was previously unfamiliar to me, virtuoso playing, and crystal clear/realistic sound.
