    There is one, but I can't remember the title. Other subcategories are Favorite Recordings on the Naxos Label and Stravinsky - Favorite Recordings.

    However, for this topic, one excellent recording is Ashkenazy playing the Rachmaninoff concertos, conducted by Andre Previn. To my ears, the solo/ensemble playing is outstanding, and the engineering of the recording is very much alive.

    Askenazy & Previn got a chamber orchestra atmosphere from the recording engineers. If you wish to hear both pianoplaying and orchestra in a grand way listen to this one:



    I have both recordings, Ashkenazy + Previn & Ashkenazy + Haitink, both are excellent, but the mood is very different.

    Tchaikovsky suite for orchestra 1-4. I really like this suites, and the recording with ussr state symphony orchestra is in my ears very good. Conducted by Evgeny Svetlanov. It is a DENON ESSENTIALS, so it may be not original cd. Nevertheless; great music, great performance,great sound

    Tchaikovsky's 5th symphony conducted by Yevgeny Mravinsky. The recording quality satisfies me an I like the presence of the strings - not too much.

    More than anything, the conductor makes the piece what it is though. Karajan's got nothing on him when it comes to Symphony 5.
