If this turns into a series, I hope they include the exquisite Reverie, which Muti left out. It's very short, which may be why it turned out so well.

I would gladly trade Reverie for Scriabin/Nemtin L'acte prealable. I heard it live performed by Vladimir Jurowski conducted State Orchestra of Russia with Alexander Ghindin on piano and two mixed choruses past May. I'm still thrill remembering it. Imagine, 3 hours of Le Poeme d'Extase meets Prometheus meets Interstellar (Black holes, Time and Space continuum, etc.).

And that's just the beginning (of The End) . . .

I just read the review by Martin Mezger in the german Stereoplay magazine, where he gives the disc only 5/10 for the interpretation, because he claims Pletnev has been manipulating the instrumentation in the score of the Symphony, without giving details.

Maybe reviewer and conductor use different scores?

Whatever, this is a magnificient performance and recording. Definitively my classical (SA)CD of the year so far.
