It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: Please clarify--the orchestral blend, or... the recorded sound?

Regarding the Sibelius, it was just so nice to hear that old-fashioned BSO "glow," as I knew it on Lp, so probably three things came together: hall, musicians and recording quality.

If any composer's string writing is susceptible to digititis, it's Brahms, followed by Dvorak. I'm really hoping that the Brahms you mentioned is captured as successfully as the Sibelius and Wagner. My favorite 3rd is Walter's but the "hot" strings are a real disappointment.

Thanks to you, I'm in the process of downloading the Brahms/Dvorak Serenades, for a mere 10 bucks. I'm not usually fond of chamber reductions, but the samples are so attractive that I just had to check it out.
