    If anyone's interested, the Markevitch LSO Philips "Festivo" recording that was my top choice among Scheherazade recordings by Russian conductors (in my earlier post) has been reissued (outside of Japan). The Australian Eloquence label released the recording on July 19, 2019, and it comes coupled with a fine performance of Rimsky-Korsakov's Capriccio espagnol: https://www.prestomusic.com/classica...gnol#tracklist.

    Impressive survey, one you didn't mention Pavel Kogan with the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra. This is a boldly Russian performance.

    Just couldn't imagine anyone listening to this number of Scheherazades without dropping dead! But well done! You get a VC for persistence anyone! Of the ones I have I would agree Kondrashin would suit anyone.
    Beecham has more magic than anyone
    Stokowski is worth hearing in the Phase 4 recording
    Karajan is pretty good but this was made with the DG accountants in mind, not because it was a particular Karajan speciality. But you won't go wrong with it as the BPO playing is special.
