I loved Ormandy's Seventh from the first hearing, knew I was hearing something special and have since always preferred it to all others. There is a special atmosphere to the playing here: a kind of living, humming, breathing intensity to the strings. The swirling, scudding snowdrifts from around the 11 minutes mark onwards are magically atmospheric. Ormandy's grasp of the symphony's architecture ensures a soft, inexorable progression towards a riveting climax. Comparative timings suggest that he is quite swift and not at all too slow as a previous reviewer complains. The great thing about his pacing is that he toys with the listener, constantly suggesting an approaching resolution without overdoing the drama or histrionics; consequently the release when it comes when it comes after such a masterly build-up is correspondingly explosive. A superlative performance of a wonderful work.
The sound on these 1957 and 1960 recordings is really excellent, some slight hiss notwithstanding. This disc is currently unavailable and as such used copies are selling for high prices. If you find a copy cheaply, buy it pronto.
