A reference version.
Crisp, exciting, satisfying performance. Orchestrally balanced. Mid-hall perspective. Detailed sound. Silent background.
This is an unusually valuable release. First, Tchaikovsky's Manfred is top-drawer stuff and still not as widely known as it should be. Second, this remains one of Lorin Maazel's great recordings - and I'm generally speaking not one of his great admirers. Third, this was always a great sounding recording, and again, the HDTT people have worked their usual miracles.
Tchaikovsky: Manfred Symphony - Lorin Maazel Conducts the Vienna Philharmonic
Tchaikovsky Symphonies are such fireworks and romantic at the same time. Maazel is one of the great conductors ever, and interprets everything so well, especially Tchaikovsky.
