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

Not too impressed by Manze's VW London Symphony

Not enough swagger and audacity in the first movt. Even Haitink projected those elements more persuasively in his EMI recording.

The Liverpool's phrasing and articulation under Manze in the 2nd movt are IMHO too "squeaky-clean" to cast a proper spell. The rather dry recording exacerbates the issue, at least for me.

I downloaded a sample of Previn's 1st movement opening (RCA) at HDTT and much preferred it to Manze's.

All that said, the Brit critics love it, even Lebrecht.
