 Stunning performances and recordings September 3, 2013 By Paul Chummers (San Jose, CA) See All My Reviews "These performances were available in the late 60s as single LPs licensed to EMI. Rozdestventsky has the full measure of these seven symphonies here packaged in a 3 CD set from Melodia. The recorded sound from 65-67 is quite astounding and the equal to more recent recordings. Arkiv has mis-identified the orchestra which is the Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra." Report Abuse
