    Well, I gave Jansons a spin, a timely reminder of what a wonderful and original piece this is, especially the gorgeous transition from the slow movement to the Scherzo.

    A fabulous performance. But then I gave the crackly old Šejna recording with the Czech Phil from 1952 an airing. Ignore the very dated sound quality, it's even better! Just so lively and loving. I hope those with a proper affection for this symphony can find the opportunity to check it out.

    The Neuman has also a soft spot in my heart
    I've been listening to the Kertesz 5 quite a lot lately, having upgraded my CDs to a 24/96 Hi-Res download. I've always preferred 3, 6 & 9 to the fifth, but lately ......

    I too have a soft spot for Neumann.

    It's been a while since I've listened to this symphony - I'll have to dig it out soon. I remember particularly liking the exciting and unusual finale - which, although the piece is in F major, starts out in A minor!

    Belated but I give this one a spin later .
