 Among the best  June 24, 2014 By David Eaton (New York, NY) See All My Reviews "Szell was a Strauss protege. These are terrific readings with virtuosic playing and many wonderful interpretive ideas---the opening of "Till," for example. The sound holds up very well for the era in which these works were recorded. Highly recommended!" Report Abuse
