10.99 Euros if you have Sublime 15.39 without.
Sound really irritated my ears and they've been feeling really good lately: open and uncongested after months of daily Nasacort.
2nd movement is rather special IMNSHO. I have had this in my QOBUZ favorites for a bit, along with No.3 & No. 4 from the same series, above.
I like what Manze and Royal Liverpool does with RVW in this series.
The 2nd was one of the VW symphonies I liked the least, until I heard the Hickox recording of the original version, which is billed as the ONLY recording we will ever have of the original version. The stuff that VW cut from the last movement is to me some of the most moving music in the whole symphony.
Not available for streaming or downloading in the UK. I think this issue was discussed a few months ago?
Of course it is obvious that a symphony by an English composer, played by an English conductor with an English orchestra on an English record label should not be available in England. I mean it stands to reason, eh?
while you still can. ;-)
