    My meaning of underrated being not hyped up or lesser known (not in their countries of birth or adoption necessarily, but around the world perhaps) -

    Milan Horvat (b. 1919)
    Stuart Challender (1947 - 1991)
    Janos Ferencsik (1907-1984)
    Adrian Leaper (b. 1953)
    David Porcelijn (b. 1947)
    Oliver Knussen (b. 1952)
    Jorge Mester (b. 1935)
    Hiroyuki Iwaki (1932-2006)
    Hans Swarowsky (1899-1975)
    Sian Edwards (b. 1959)
    Imre Pallo (b. 1941)
    Muhai Tang (b. 1949)
    Nicholas Routley (b. 1947)
    ...& many many more...

    Eschenbach's account of Tchaikovsky's Francesca da Rimini is the most deliciously diabolical version I have heard.

    ^^Forgot Maestro Wit. There are a good deal of "underrated conductors" in the Naxos stable for sure...

    In that case listen to Stokowski's with the Stadium Symphony Orchestra of New York it'll knock you out--Everest recording.

    I just listened to it, and it was pathetic compared to the Eschenbach! This is a depiction of hell we're talking about! You made it sound as though you've heard the Eschenbach, but if not, you really have to. Best whirlwind; best ending; best everything.

    I don't know if it's possible that you listened to the wrong version I couldn't find the Stokowski Stadium Orchestra on YouTube. I found Eschenbach's , courtesy of Polednice, and it's good but not as good as the 1958 Everest recording. This set the standard and I think it is more dramatic and it's faster as well. "Stokowski transforms Tchaikovsky's Dante inspired fantasy into terrifying reality...this record is a classic, probably the best ever Francesca Da Rimini". I would put it on this thread but a( I don't know how, and b) I haven't got the equipment. Of course I could always drop by and play it to you-- i'm only 20 miles up the road.

    Don't worry, I listened to the precise Everest recording you requested via Spotify. And it sucked.
