Spectacular sound - just buy it!
on 5 January 2013
This recording dates from 1960 but the sound is as good as (or better than) most more modern recordings. It is quite astonishingly full & detailed, and you really do get the sense of sitting up close to the orchestra and hearing each and every line of the music. For me, the performance itself is rather slow in much of both halves & loses some of the drama because of it, but it is nevertheless well-worth hearing and having. And at 69p it would be ridiculous not to buy it - you won't regret it.
