Concerning Svetlanov's 1st (1969) "Scheherezade", critics don't seem to pay it any attention.
But on Youtube, it has over half-a-million views and over 500 comments (mostly positive).
Here is an example:
- A total different approach to this Masterwork. The conductor work very profund on many details of the orchestra, with slow tempi and Chamber characteristics. I can hear the different sections with pure clarity. The quality sound on vynil is incomparable! Thanks!
I listened to it and liked it's lyrical restraint compared to the dynamic sonic theatrics of others I have heard.
Could I be the only one here who can say positive things about it?
And what about recordings of other works which critics have sniffed at but have been embraced by numerous listeners?
