I am a profession trombonist and when I saw this recording in the store, I listened to the little snippets of audio they give you. In those the horns sound amazing, however, the trumpet section (or at least one of them) is playing increadibly sharp throughout the recording and makes it very difficult to listen to. Plus the brass section is too top heavy and covers a lot of the important counter lines in the strings. However, that being said, the 3rd disc talk about the symphony is very interesting. Not a bad buy, but the symphony is not Chicago or New York.
