This review is from: Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6; Mendelssohn: Overture to A Midsummer Night s Dream Op.21 (Philharmonia Orchestra / Sir Charles Mackerras) (Audio CD)
This performance is nothing short of magnificent. I have heard many performances in nearly seventy years of listening to music, but never heard a better one than this. I have had many recordings in the past, and still have Fricsay's excellent Berlin Philharmonic recording and the classic pre-war Furtwangler, extremely well transferred on Naxos Historical, but this beats the lot! The dynamic range of the recording is perhaps a little to wide - if one wants to hear the quiet passages, one must be prepared to be blasted out of your armchair in places, but believe me, it's well worth it! I cannot recommed it too highly.
