Surprised you didn't include this--Monty Python on Tchaikovsky, and a bit of Richter at the end

Besides the fact I really like the music, I think the recording is one of the best I've never heard.

Not really sure if we should call this "classical"

Certainly influential to many including György Ligeti .

 

Some people seem to prefer the earlier recordings produced by Charles Amirkhanian.

 

The Wergo recordings I posted are the most comprehensive however.

That's very kind of you but I'm pretty sure I'll like it since I adore this particular violist :wink_face:

 

Just ordered:

 


33 cd's of the great Sviatoslav Richter, can't wait  :D

I have just now bought this cd. Beethoven no. 9 by Fricsay. I am completly floored by  his interpretation. I recommend to hear it. Probably one of the best soulful interpretation of this symphony.

So . After Isabelle Faust , I can give another favorite of mine . :D

 

 

I'm really fan of this:

YES! For those who don't like slow tempos, try the 3rd movement. It might change your mind--the 3rd movement is 18 minutes, but I never noticed how much longer it was than my other recordings because it was so engaging.

Fricsay is one of the best, most underrated conductors ever. His Tchaikovsky symphonies 4, 5, 6 are thrilling to the max.

A special mention to his Dvorak`s 9th. Impressive reading.

Funny that, it seems he both is and isn't. On the one hand everyone seems to agree that he was one of the very greatest conductors of the 20th century. On the other hand he just doesn't seem to have the glamorous image that would make that a record company (DG/Universal for instance) would cash in on it with a lavish 'Fricsay Edition'.
