Left to right, CS-6061 Krips' classicist version of Schubert's "Great" Symphony earned a Rosette from the Penguin Guide. Is that any wonder having been recorded in the famed Kingsway Hall and engineered by the great Kenneth Wilkinson. Another Kingsway recording, CS-6147, Ravel's Daphnis & Chloe (Martinon) is high atop the list of best Londons. As a kid, Mozart's 4 horn concertos were springboards for me into the world of Classical music. To this day, each time I hear them, it takes me hours, maybe days, to get those haunting melodies out of my head! This Maag/Tuckwell recording, CS-6178 is one of my favorite versions for two of them. Listen to those melodies a couple of times and see if you don't get hooked! While not exactly my favoured genre, This Borodin/Shostakovich classic, CS-6338 has many chamber fans. The critics say my FFSS copy has some stridency in the upper strings that the FFRR does not have. I would like an FFRR copy to compare! Happy Listening !
