Caveat: I've heard zero of the recent Gaffigan cycle, which has been praised by some, and none of Ashkenazi with Sydney, concerning which I've heard little to encourage me to try it.
    Love the brass in Gergiev's Stravinsky--need to hear his Prokofiev.

    Just listened to Jarvi and Katajenko in number 6 - my favourite of the symphonies. Found Kitajenko sluggish. Jarvi seemed like a good performance: enough energy and bite for me, and a coherent, well-played account overall.
