This would be my first recommendation in investigating Silvestrovs music. His 5th symphony is his finest work,as well as one of the greatest post 60's works, and I would suggest this is its finest realization. The fourth symphony is also given its most commited performance. The sound is the finest for each work, and BIS and Sarasate reveal much to these works ignored or unheard in previous performances. IF you were to buy one silvestrov album, this is it.
