Even my system sounds great when I pop that one in the silver disk spinner!
But for me, the above is better performance if not better recording.
Too bad Bychkov never managed to record Rochmanino(ff, v, w)'s 1st. symphony. :-(
Are you sure Keith O. Johnson did the engineering on this? Does it say this on the sacd?
I also agree with jdaniel about Jansons' EMI - and I like his newer (multi-channel!) recording with the RCOA too! I confess to liking the old Johanos/Dallas recording as well (bass impact!). Then there's the old Kondrashin recording, the Svetlanov recording on the Canyon label (in the set mentioned below). . . and let's not forget a superb recent performance (on plain old CD) by Jurowski and the LPO, which captures the real excitement of a live performance! (Is it hard to obtain now? Amazon is selling it for over $51 - Yikes!)
Another great performance and maybe the best sounding recording of the Symphonic Dances is the Dallas Symphony conducted by Donald Johanos
It is available from Analog Productions . Although done in 1967 there is a recent SACD which is a sonic spectacular.
I think it is explosive
