4.0 out of 5 stars Mravinsky treasures, 21 Feb 2004
This review is from: Mravinsky Conducts Brahms And Tchaikovsky (Leningrad Phil) (Audio CD)
This is a suberb disc. The only reason that I have given it 4, instead of 5 stars is the date of the original recordings. It would obviously be idle to expect 50-year old discs to equate with modern recordings in terms of quality, although the suberbly pointed and characteful playing is more than a match for most modern versions. The recording dates of these (studio) recordings is given incorrectly in the booklet. The official Mravinsky discography gives 1949, not 1950, for the Brahms Symphony No. 1, and 25th March 1949 for the Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings.The recordings are a little light on the bass side, but Mravinsky favoured the resulting clean, open textures. The Brahms is also available in several two-discs sets, most recently from Doremi, but I haven't had access to any other transfers for comparison. The present CD is excellent, and can be recommended whole-heartedly.
