This recording has long been a favorite of mine both for the lovely Pastoral Symphony (perhaps the best on record) and the highly unusual Tuba Concerto, beautifully played by John Fletcher. The ever welcome Heather Harper sounds just delightful in the 4th movement of the Symphony. The Decca recording team with Kenneth Wilkinson, again under contract to RCA, delivers the goods sonically with the sort of hall ambiance and real world capture of the orchestra that Wilkinson's engineering is well known for achieving. HDTT has made a superb transfer of thi recording in the Pure DSD transfer to which I'm very gratefully listening in this DSD256 version. Well done once again, HDTT!
My favorite recording of this symphony, I've listed to it since 1972 and this is a very clean copy of the tape, and what's not to like about a tuba concerto?
