I found a sealed copy on LP a few years ago. I've enjoyed it a lot. It only cost a dollar.I think Scheherazade fanatics should try to hear Stokowski's LSO recording, whacky Phase 4 sonics and all. Just avoid Decca's botched early "ADRM" remastering. Outside of a big and out-of-print "Stokowski Complete Decca Recordings" box, the Cala Records remaster was much better than that ADRM CD:
I have all of these recordings, and more, and still contend the Sanderling as one of the best, though when I want to wallow in the sound, I play a version I ripped from my collection which has Ben Heppner from the Bernini recording singing the heldentenor songs and Janet Baker from the Haitink recording singing the contralto. Still, I wouldn't be without any of them.That's a great set, long out of print, but I think all of this is available for streaming or download. However, I wouldn't place the Das Lied above classic recordings like Ludwig/Wunderlich/Klemperer, Baker/King/Haitink or Miller/Haefliger/Walter.
Well, nice try.Nagging us about multi-channel is Kal's job.
The album is noteworthy because the composer Arvo Pärt was involved during the recording sessions.
I highly recommend Mark Gorenstein's Farwell - Tchiakovsky Sym. No. 6 on Pope Music, if you can find a copy. It's a good performance, well recorded and dynamic; the finally leaves you almost breathing your last. The partnering Da Remini - Fantasy is also a fun piece.I can't see any equivalence here. Currentzis beats the symphony into a pulp and the recording has squashed dynamics.

I just finished listening to Bernstein's - Mahler No. 6
I like this!Jack Gallagher's Symphony No. 2 is my favorite work of the 21st Century so far. The music is tonal and accessible, but substantial and holds up well to many repeated listens.
