    I'm really glad to read this,it is exactly how I feel.I'm not a big Barenboim fan but his Elgar is wonderful,it has a feeling of being just right,you can feel his love for the music.The English Chamber Orchestra plays it with great empathy.
    Alas,the recording is not released on CD.

    Schnittke
    Concerto Grosso No. 1
    Gidon Kremer (violin), Tatjana Grindenko (violin), Yuri Smirnov (harpsichord)

    I think we’re still not quite at that point in history where the brilliance of Schnittke’s music has come into light.

    I need to get around to revisiting this cycle. I recall being pretty much underwhelmed by it, but I’ll have to see if my opinion has changed at all. In the meantime, I’ve really been enjoying the newer Sladkovsky/Tatarstan NSO cycle on Melodiya.
