I’m an admirer of Stokowski and your downloads allowed me to discover another of fis recordings of Tchaikowsky Symphony No. 5, furthermore in high resolution: unique
I love Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony. This recording by Stokowski, transferred by HDTT, is one of most recommendable. I came to know that Stokowski was a real great conductor.
I’d never thought that the notorious Phase 4 recording of Decca company sound so clear. Stokowski’s performance is excellent, as always.
The DSD remastering is vivid indeed. Well, the original Decca Phase 4 Stereo LP back in the vinyl days was vivid to begin with .... if anything the remastering integrates better as the vinyl showed off lots of multiple miking. Those detractors who questioned Stokowski's free manner will still do so .... he freshens up the old warhorse of Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony by taking liberties with the score .... to my ears, however, this has always been a welcome performance. The Philharmonia London plays impeccably (as always?) then puts themselves at the service of the free-minded music-making that made this a fresh hearing originally as well as now. The only fifth symphony readings I like as much as this one include Jascha Horenstein and the hot virtuosity Igor Markevitch god on the podium in front of the London Symphony of its era. So .... bravo ... thanks ... these archival recordings are renewed, revealed as lasting treasures.
