 CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS ONE November 23, 2013 By Peter T. (Bethesda, MD) See All My Reviews "Nor can I recommend the other symphonies in this cycle conducted by Chailly. For example the first movement of # 8 is just a high speed rattle by timpani and wiry strings. Quite unpleasant to listen to." Report Abuse
