All of the ones named Paul Paray do.
Don't spout nonsense. Paray rushes EVERYTHING.
Paray rushes the hell out of the Schumann symphonies, recorded with
the Detroit Symphony for Mercury. An excellent Schumann cycle, BTW.
I'll have to do some more extensive listening to the many recordings
made by French conductors to see if they tend to rush the slow parts
as much as they rush the fast parts. What do Amazon Reviewers have to
say about German and Austrian conductors? Do the drag in the fast
parts AND the slow parts? Based on my experience with one conductor
from the former Yugoslavia (von Matacic) I'd have to generalize that
Serbo-Croatian conductors tend to rush both the fast and slow parts
and then drag both the fast and slow parts according to some sort of
unpredictable pattern but that it always works in Bruckner :)
