Doesn't do it justice
This symphony is a work of pure genius, but this version just doesn't sound right to me. It's a very technically skilled performance, but with a work so intensely programmatic, small things, such as the repitition of the beginning of the fourth movement completely ruin the flow of the work. It's not the best deal for your money.
