No disrespect, but....
Generally very recommendable. No disrespect to the soloist Steven Gross, but the iTunes Store info can give the impression that (former Chicago Symphony hornist) Dale Clevenger is playing when here, he is on the rostrum conducting. Nevertheless, Gross makes a fabulous soloist. Good accompaniment from the Bratislava orchestra although their own brass can dominate (witness the trumpets in the Track 4 clip). Buy it but don't forget the classic Dennis Brain on EMI (his is a mono recording, but not a problem).
