5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite symphony. 18 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This has been my favourite symphony for the past forty years. I once saw Bernstein on TV showing how he prepared the orchestra for this dynamic music. It never fails to draw the most exciting images in my mind when I her it. Also it is a real treat to have the piano concerto on the same disc. Excellent value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable, but......... 12 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A record to treasure.

The symphony is played with such passion, sensitivity and sheer beauty. It's just gorgeous.

The Piano Concerto is stunning, really mind-bogglingly good.

The NYPO is in breath-taking form.

The "but" in review title........I don't think I have ever heard the final movement of the symphony played at such a speed and that might just take a bit of getting used to. But I haven't got the heart to reduce this record from 5 star because everything else is so perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars This doesn't come any better!!! 7 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD
This must be the best version I have heard so far and that's includes both performances.

Bernstein's captivating performance behind the pianoforte, in Shostakovich 2'nd piano concerto, is absolutely stunning - is has everything - soul, dynamics, insight, sensitivity, energy and drive!!!

Bernstein knows where it's at and even though it is an older recording, the sound it really good.
(I have to confess that I don't the own CD version - I have it on vinyl) But just wanted to recommend this recording to anyone who cares - this is marvellous!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bernstein on fire! 4 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bernstein and the NYPO deliver! A blistering account of the symphony, with even more value added by the piano concerto -
a work unfamiliar to me previously but which I took to at once. The age of the recording is no bar to any intent to buy. Be
assured...this is a top bargain even now and gives the modern listener a very real idea of the quality of the best vinyl records
of other days. With postage - costing under a fiver from the CD label's online outlet. Wonderful!!
