In Reply to: RE: Speaking of domesticated Rachmaninoff: Oue's Symphonic Dances on Reference is the best digital recording I've heard yet posted by firstname.lastname@example.org on March 07, 2017 at 08:28:26
If you like the Oue Rachmaninov, try "Copland 100" on the same label, which includes Appalachian Spring, Third Symphony, and Fanfare for the Common Man. Recently I listened to 7 or 8 recordings of the symphony (with score) prior to hearing the Cleveland Orchestra play it at Severance Hall. Oue's easily had the best sound, and I didn't find any performances (including either of Bernstein's) that I liked better.
And not just because of the sonics. Oue's molto deliberato sold it.
New York Phil keeps the energy going right to the end. I felt that Oue's players sounded a bit fatigued by the iron and steel climax. But yes, the RR sound was/is infinitely better than the DGG.
