overhyped and can't replace the best previous version,
This review is from: Mussorgsky / Stokowski: Pictures at an Exhibition (Audio CD)
Unlike Mr Harnett I am a MAJOR fan of Stokowski transcriptions and own a number of these on CD. I bought this CD on the strength of a rave review in the Times. What a bummer! After I'd listened to it, I played my old version (and I DO mean old): Telarc CD-80042 Maazel/Cleveland Orchestra.
This completely blows the Knussen away such that I won't be hanging on to the Knussen, even as a comparative listen.
