    I quite liked half of it! It seemed that each disc had one very good and one rather average performance. I can't remember any more which symphonies were the good ones.

    For those who care a little about this kind of "secular" interest, this oboist is of the German school, I think best represented by Lothar Koch in te Berlin Philharmonic in the 60s and 70s, and he is very, very good. This is a lovely version of the Strauss.
