A Brahms Second very much in the mold of Toscanini or George Szell, but with better sound quality than either of those estimable recordings. In fact, HDTT has reproduced RCA's original sonics with a stunning, crystal-clear presence that delivers one of the truest sonic pictures of a symphony orchestra (the Boston Symphony at its 1960s peak) you will ever hear outside a 'live' performance at Boston's Symphony Hall. Leinsdorf's conducting is superb as is the playing of the BSO. I've owned this recording ever since its original Lp release and it has never sounded better than in HDTT's CD transfer from an RCA 15 ips commercial tape. Simply stunning!
solid all around, great music, solid performance and transfer
