Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 1 etc. - Neeme Järvi          (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
  Review by pip440 April 14, 2005

I loved this modern sounding reading of the first symphony, eschewing too much sentimentality. Sound is rich and natural, with tremendous bass sound.

Berlioz: Requiem - Munch        (12 of 15 found this review helpful)
  Review by Chris April 13, 2005

Do I or anyone else with this work already in their collection really need this one too? My answer is YES, YES, YES!!! Not only is it offered at an irresistable, two for one, bargain price from many dealers. This recording made in 1959 is also IMO in almost all respects better than any other ... more
