Paavo is top choice once again...

Let’s put it this way — these are the best I heard, but there were hundreds that I didn’t. It’s a rather traditional list, but I didn’t mean it to be that way. Some new music by Reich and Stockhausen almost made the cut. I’ve included two reissues (I usually don’t), but they were just too good to pass up. The order is not a ranking.

1. Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 3 and 8. Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Paavo Jarvi, conductor. RCA Red Seal.
