Dvorak: Symphony No. 6 - Sir Colin Davis          (5 of 5 found this review helpful)
  April 30, 2005

Yet another absolute winner from LSO Live! Dvorak's underrated sixth Symphony that has for too long stood in the shadow of the more famous 8th and 9th Symphonies,is played with real fire and gusto by the LSO under Colin Davis and emerges as a work of real stature IMO.It is really great to hear what ... more

Next to the fifth and sixth it is my favourite Tchaikovsky ... more
Sibelius, Prokofiev, Glazunov: Violin Concertos - Heifetz        (5 of 8 found this review helpful)

I generally agree with akiralx's insightful obervations regarding this release. This is another good, if not spectacular, SACD from Living Stereo. Both the Glazunov and the Prokofiev are excellent. And I only feel the need to add, that in the case of the Sibelius Concerto ,I actually prefer the ... more
