    REKNY More than 1 year ago
    I've bought Haitink recordings and CD's for about 40 years. This compilation has some of his best performances, especially of works that are not usually associated with him. He has a wide repertoire, still, I had passed over his Stravinsky. Mistake; listen to these familiar works anew. Also, a great Dvorak Seventh Symphont, a very early Haitink performance. A great set at a great price!
