In Reply to: Gergiev's Strauss? Souds like a torture to me... posted by kuma on June 2, 2017 at 00:36:51:
Yes, outside the Iron Curtain I prefer Wigglesworth to Petrenko in Shosty so far, though Petrenko's Liverpool 8th is up next.
I imprinted on Cliburn's Prokofiev 3rd and still like it: all the chords in the swirling final pages are made to sound, but not at the expense of energy. I also like Cliburn's poetry in the reflective section of the 1st movt.
