Oops...my goof, Mike!
I somehow ended up listing my preferred recordings of the 5th Symphony, instead of Nevsky. Go figure! Guess I can chalk that up to too many students, not enough sleep!
Sorry for the confusion.
I love that Reiner recording of Nevsky. It just doesn't get better than that. Another favorite is the Jarvi/Scottish National Orchestra recording. The tuba playing is very tasty, albeit not as prominent as I might like. The Scythian Suite that is coupled with it is absolutely top-notch too!
