If you're reading this, then I assume you have a suggestion lined up already
I'm just searching for some general opinions about which recordings of Tchaikovsky's Francesca da Rimini you think are the best - and when I say the best, I mean the most terrifyingly dramatic (and, no, I am not just interested in the ending)!
I currently own the version recorded by Ricco Saccani with the Budapest Philharmonic, and I'm very pleased with it; I certainly think it's one of the better recordings of the piece. However, I recently listened to the version by Riccardo Muti and the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the sheer Hellishness of the piece became much more apparent.
So, unless I've already luckily struck gold with Muti, which recording do you think will scare me the most? :P
