I heard the most amazing recording today on the radio of the Prokofiev Symphony #5. It was the London Symphony with Sir Malcolm Sargent conducting. I don't know if it was Fletcher or Catlinet(sp?) playing, but it was like a tuba concerto. In fact it was almost too much tuba at times. But the playing was all very tasty, with a Jacobs type of bredth and tone. It's really excellent, from all angles, not just the tuba playing. It's on the Everest label, I can not recommend it highly enough.
