If you are here because you love the 5th symphony, then look no further - I have heard nothing that quite gets where Rattle does with the climax/transition from the first to second movement. It lifts my heart every time I hear it and I suspect it will yours too. Just occasionally, you come across a recording of a piece that makes you think "that's what the composer meant" and this is one of those. This is one of those recordings that makes you duplicate a work in your collection.
As for the recording quality, one word, flawless.
Kennedy's deeply felt rendition of the violin concerto is equally impressive, if it lacks extra intensity of Oistrakh or Mullova.
Beautiful & expansive DDD recording.
Kennedy and Rattle in the violin concerto are as one. There is an understanding between them, a chemistry that is so rarely heard. I had an old cassette of this which I always loved, and it remains my favourite version of my favourite violin concerto.
And the superlatives carry over to the 5th Symphony where Rattle, in his CBSO days, gives in my opinion the best performance of this symphony ever committed to disc. If only Rattle had stayed like this allowing the music to flow.....unfortunately his interpretations seems to have lost some of the freedom and immediacy in Berlin.
However, let's just revel in this CBSO version which is as near perfection as I'll ever hear.
