Brahms: Symphony No. 2 in D, Op. 73; Shostakovich: Symphony No. 1 in F, Op. 10 - Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra/William Steinberg
KHCD-2011-028DL (STEREO) - Brahms: Symphony No. 2 in D, Op. 73; Shostakovich: Symphony No. 1 in F, Op. 10 - Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra/William Steinberg - Continuing the series of reissues of the legendary Command Classics recordings made by the Pittsburgh Symphony under William Steinberg, this transfer contains both the first recording made by Enoch Light's team in Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium, and one of the last in the series. The Brahms was a sonic spectacular from its first release, and this transfer is made from a near mint gold label, heavy platter Command disc. The Shostakovich is a bit more distant in recorded perspective, much as the Beethoven symphonies in the Command series; the disc used has the vibrant sound, low-end depth, and broad soundstage found in first pressings. Interpretations are thoughtful as always, with Steinberg's signature fresh approach to standard classics.
