 Great set, but.... July 5, 2013 By Richard R. (Arlington, VA) See All My Reviews "The listing on this website is in erro; the second symphony is conducted by Mariss Jansons, and the Isle of the Dead and Symphonic Dances are conducted by Andre Previn. These are all very fine performances, but they are not conducted by Paavo Berglund, who accompanies Leif Ove Andsnes in the third concerto. Worthy of a full recommendation, but not as listed on the Arkivmusic site." Report Abuse
