it's Hils again. I risked letting her loose on my favourite concerto :D
Pix, please try this. There is nothing 'classical' about wild Sibelius. It rocks; especially with this girl in the groove.
Turn the volume UP! :dance:

Revolution music.
Yes, we all know it.
Yes, he makes five (or seven?) attempts to finish it.
But this performance is raw, detailed, and still great sixty-five years on.

Nobody is going to challenge the right of Bruckner 8 to be up there amongst the finest of symphonic works, but this performance :bow-yellow: ... We're still coming back to earth.
Best speakers/headphones only please. 80 mins.

Bruckner 4. Perfection and fun from 1973.
"Never been equalled", said the man. I put this through the big speakers for him at teatime. Only two channels, but we were immersed in gorgeous sound.
Wide dynamics from YouTube too..?
The track orders are there, so go to the Scherzo for the finest mass horn playing you will ever hear.
