Try it you like Russian music
Tuesday, September 5, 2006
This is Russian orchestral music of the best kind. The Speakers Corner pressing is a superb pressing for a re-issue.
The sound is excellent with killer bass and large volumes of air in the hall. The recording perspective is fairly close.
Although it is not a match for Shostakovitch conducting this same piece on the old EMI Melodia (which would be very hard to find on LP).
This reissue is a must have for music and sound. If you need at least one piece of Shostakovitch's music the #5 is the one to have.
