OK  as a  collector of LPs CDs and various mp3s of the DS's symphonies... what versions do you like the best?  I especially like the Rostropovich recordings.  Actually, I remember Rostropovich performing the DS Cello Concerto with the DSO several years ago.. I was in the front row.. on edge of my seat with every note.  Also... Neeme Jarvi's are also great additions.

Kondrashin's are wonderful... but very expensive.

Totally agree.

… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.  RVW, 1948
