Symphony No.2 in D Major, Op.43

Los Angeles Philharmonic, Esa-Pekka Salonen

Total Playing Time 43:42

It's one of those interpretations that lie just outside the mainstream, while somehow managing not to sound affected. The Los Angeles Philharmonic plays beautifully for Salonen, as it has for years. The recorded sound . . . is good . . . The left-to-right imaging is very precise, presumably thanks to multi-miking . . . Salonen's effort is a highly intelligent and valid alternative, especially as a download to carry on your mp3 player.
