Re: Atterberg Symphony 5
With respect, Chris, you're talking rubbish. Of course "A review that concluded that the new Chandos is excellent, and left it at that" would be helpful to listeners! I want to know about the CHandos recording, not about another recording the reviewer might have heard - a position immediately devalued by the fact that the reviewer hasn't heard other recordings of the same thing!
And it would of course be very helpful to Chandos, who are presumably supplying Musicweb at their expense with copies of the disc in the first place.
Of course you don't need a score. I've read literally thousands of reviews, on this site too, where the author has not made comparisons or had a score to hand.
Go and browbeat someone else.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
