 arguably the best ever April 12, 2016 By Victor Balest (Medina, OH) See All My Reviews "Particularly with respect to the Mozart Symphonies in this collection, I have been an avid listener of this music for over 50 years. While I am not a professional musician, I have a good ear, and I know what I like and I think a good judge of quality. I'd suspect that I have heard all these symphonies played by at least a dozen top conductors and orchestras and this ranks at the top. I am talking about how Kubelik compares to all who are considered the greatest conductors. His subtle emphasis for various instruments in certain passages with perfect modulation is incomparable. The engineer who transposed this on to the digital platform did an equally outstanding job creating unbelievably well-defined and clear separation of sounds. Having this collection, you can pretty much end your search-- you have found the best." Report Abuse
