I don't know any disc that is 5.1 MCH. Why this sudden concern about the missing .1 from the reviewers here?

Because the booklet and back cover were mislabeled by Reference Recordings. Same with the previous PSO Strauss, also recorded by SoundMirror.

5.1 is what Reference releases when Keith Johnson does their PCM recordings.

No applause.

I, for one, see no reason for 5.1 on music recordings. Every channel should be full-range and those who choose to use bass management and subs can handle that on their own.

Movies with possible infra-bass effects are different.

I was always given to understand that classical music recordings had no frequencies low enough to require a 0.1 channel, and that this was, as you say, reserved for really deep sounds from movie soundtracks.

But could e.g. an orchestral bass drum ever need it?

How low and how loud and how competent your speaker's LF response is are the questions.

In general, a full-range speaker should be able to reproduce the full spectrum of the orchestra, including the bass drum, at a modest level. If you want it lower (organ pedals) and louder, you either need more capable speakers or you use bass management. I see no need to have the latter prescribed by others who do not know my system or my preferences.

This discussion is entirely in the context of Dolby/dts and the reproduction of movie soundtracks, not music.

The sound of this recording does not seem as wonderful in stereo as portrayed by Castor's review for the mch tracks. While the hall ambiance is better captured than in Reference's first Pittsburgh recording of the Strauss, the sound in stereo often has a tubby quality, particularly in the Dvorak. Third try may be the charm. Compare the prior relatively recent Mahler recordings from Pittsburgh made by a different label.
