In its early days Naxos struggled with a number of Eastern European and Far Eastern orchestras recording totally unfamiliar idioms in murky sound. Some of these recordings were actually either quite good or at least acceptable.

Today Naxos's sound quality has improved considerably but-above all-the general standard of orchestral musicianship has improved out of all recognition. The Buffalo or Nashville orchestras in the USA, for example, and most of the Eastern European orchestras can master an unfamiliar idiom and turn it very good to superb performances Smiley

Which is just as well considering that the major orchestras very seldom record anything these days unless it is taken from a live performance!
