I don't know how many times Barbirolli recorded Enigma Variations.
I have a 1963 recording in my EMI 30 CD Elgar boxset.
I'll revisit that.
Some Elgar could do good for me...  0:)
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Maybe this one Karl?
Another famous and highly regarded recording:


On my CD the other major work is the Cello Concerto, with IIRC André Navarra.

So, you have this:

It was one of my first CDs, and it is a beauty.
