A very vibrant recording in 24/96, relatively close perspective but with enough depth and wide dynamic range. But what strikes you most forcibly is Peter Maag's typically incisive direction of the rhythmic energy of these scores, which allied to the full, textured string sound results in a rich and expressive account of both symphonies, with ideally judged tempi throughout. Very highly recommended! If you know Maag's early 60s LSO readings of Mozart serenades on Decca Legends (or his Mendelssohn 3) you'll have a good idea of the sound to expect, but in a gorgeous, high-res modern setting. Better sound overall than his CDs of Mozart with the Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto, which were already very recommendable! Maybe someone could do a 24/96 download of those? Anyway, one of the best 24/96 downloads yet. Jayne Lee Wilson, Liverpool UK
