Unfortunately, the site gets very slow again, guests are appearing out of nowhere, and hey presto, it takes 3 minutes to get in the post section.


Partitas from secondary sources, Part IV.

A pleasure this box!

Shostakovich 5

This is a level-headed, clear-eyed interpretation... it doesn't have the Mahlerian pathos of Bernstein nor the intensity of Mravinsky's best renditions, nor does it have Haitink's cold austerity... the first movement is faithfully moderato

But what playing! It's the best played 5th I've heard (and I've heard dozens) ... just astonishing control, dynamics and precision... sound quality is superb

I've now purchased it without even listening to the Tchaikovsky (which I trust will be similarly amazing)
