I just read John Quinn's excellent review of the new Jarvi/Chandos CD and very much agree with his views. However, there is actually a third recorded version which I like best of all. This is conducted by Stig Westerberg with the Stockholm PO on the Musica Sveciae label (MSCD 620 1992). Westerberg steers a 'middle path' and offers something of a synthesis between the more emotional approach of the CPO recording and the more dynamic Jarvi version on Chandos.
