Robert Schumann: Symphonies 1-4 & Manfred Overture / The Detroit Symphony Orchestra / Paul Paray    Mercury 2 cd's

Excellent recordings of the symphonies conducted by Paul Paray,a conductor rated very higly by classical fans & me! Some of his recordings can be a bit hard to get,unfortunately & pricey. You just have to keep looking. These recordings boast the fabled 'Mercury' sound,which I love and still (at least in most cases) sound amazing,even in this day & age,in terms of the sheer clarity of the sound. (Mercury recordings also have a very distinctive sound!) The Fourth symphony & Manfred Overture are in mono sound,however! But,I love mono,so what not to like? Although,if I bought a new recording & it was in mono I might not be so thrilled?! But I do mean mono from when mono recordings were the current technology,of course! I mean,recording a piece of music in mono now would be a bit daft! (Okay,they get your point now! ed. ::) ;D)
