A received a few gift coupons on my birthday that allowed me to acquire some new CDs. One of the new discs I purchased was Mravinsky and the Leningrad Phil’s critically acclaimed 1961 recording of Tchaikovsky’s Symphonies Nos. 4, 5 & 6 on Deutsche Grammophon. I found Mravinsky’s version of the “Pathetique” much faster in pace when compared to my Klemperer version on EMI. The recording sounds very good for its age and I am getting to enjoy this CD more and more.
