Review by raffells December 7, 2005 (5 of 8 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
FABULOUS 10 STARS I have previously revied 5 stars for both the previous issues in this series (one was deleted?) In some ways this is the best yet.If you imagine the 20 odd minutes Overture/Tone Poem to be a similair orchestral extravaganza similair but better to Suk Novak or Zemlinsky with gorgeous string writing then you get the picture .
This is followed by a Very Big and loud Symphony which last 44 odd minues and encompasses the world of Richard Strauss Wagner Bruckner (and a reference to Shostakovitch)with a Mendlessohn Reformation movement followed by Mahler and a Beethovenian final few chords in what could be described as and orgy of symphonic romanticism.I may even have missed a few..The very large Swiss orchestra and the conducter carry this off effortlessly and whilst some will laugh at the acknowledged cribs from some of the the other composers this is definitly an Original work.
I would guess this si DSD and unless the Rudi Stefan disc is better then its My record of the Year/sorry sacd......Excellent detailed booklet that helps.....Dave
