Sound quality is excellent for this recording. I waited for long time for this with HDTT DSD
eXemplary performance of this way over played (albeit great) piece. but this takes it from ordinary to eXtraordinary.
Scruffy describes the SQ - congested and rather scratchy upper strings in this Columbia recordings. And the readings are definitely offputting - big-band style and often painfully slow; where they should soar, they sag, and particularly in the final movements of both symphonies. Not one of Walter's best - sorry.
