- Symphony No. 1 in C major, Op. 21
- Symphony No. 6 in F major ("Pastoral") Op. 68
Béla Drahos has trained his orchestra in Budapest brilliantly, the performances are scrupulously faithful to the scores and the tempi are flexible and up to date. The balance boasts lots of woodwind, brass and timpani – the very reverse of the Karajan sound – and I particularly enjoyed the sense of lightness and sophistication of Symphonies Nos 1 and 6.
