Performance:   Sonics:  
When I ordered this title last week, I was a bit sceptical, whether I would get another "quite good" interpretation. I love the music and have many good recordings, Karajan, Bernstein, Maazel, etc., and at least the very good DSD-recorded Fischer-SACD-version (Channel Classics). But as the recording of the Fifth with Gatti, which I do not know myself, got good reviews, I "ran the risk". And I am glad that I did!! For me this is the best interpretation of Tschaikowskys 4th, I have ever heard. Gatti seems to have an inner relation to the deep sentiment of the music, which - what has been critisized - sometimes reminds of Tschaikowskys ballets and operas, especially Eugen Onegin. For this I love this symphony. - The sound quality (listened in stereo only)could not have been better, analogue-like pure DSD-recording, natural instrument timbre, wide soundstage, impressive dynamics. Highly recommended!!
