RCA LSC-2581, 1962
Here is a worthy performance and a nice stereo recording of a wonderful peice of music.
Very rich orchestral sound is so appropriate for this music. Reiner, Van Cliburn and CSO at their respective bests.
Mature playing on everyone's part lets the music work its magic.
I haven't listened to this for some time (too long!). The last time I tried it my cartridge wouldn't track it well, and I was pressed for time so I let it slide. This time I made the effort to dial in the arm/cartridge and I reaped a big reward.
I wound up listening to the 4th movement 3X, and the music is still in my head.
I love this piece. I set the album in front of the record shelves.
