Richard Strauss: Symphonia Domestica Chicago Symphony Orchestra/ Fritz Reiner      RCA Living Stereo

I love these RCA ling stereo recordings. The sound quality is just as amazing as it's supposed to be,from everything I've read over the years. I've heard contemporary recording's that sound inferior to this. But it's the clarity that makes these recordings so extraordinary. (The recording label,Mercury,is another one) Funny,how I'm enjoying these Strauss tone poems (and 'symphonies') after spending years telling myself that I didn't like them! Although,I kept on liking Also Sprach Zarathustra! This has got to be one of the best recordings of the Symphonia Domestica. I think the whole idea of it is fun! I mean why not compose a symphony about your own home life?!! And if your a composer of genius like Richard Strauss?! (Sorry,not you,Draeseke! Grin) The photo on the front is fun,too!

Careful! You might get a visit from those guys with violin cases and flat noses... Wink
Oh,yes! (Ahem!) And back to zis very great man,jawohl! Grin
