CD Reviews

A great cross-section of Stock
Dr. Paul R. Terry | Bedworth, Warwickshire United Kingdom | 09/26/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This collection contains so many excellent recordings that I hardly know where to start! However, first-time buyers should be aware that the recorded quality is not comparable to modern technology, hence I have given it 4 stars overall. The performances are very strong and flexible, for example Zarathustra (only the second version ever made, I think). Tchaik 5 is cut in the last movement (as many conductors used to do in those days). The short pieces are all well-judged, and give an idea of Stock's great range of sympathies. His own Waltz is like Ravel's La Valse, quite sinister.

It's sad that this set is no longer available. I would be happy to swap copies for other CD's of Stock, for example the Chausson Symphony. If interested, please contact me on"
