Lenny and Osmo head-to-head on Sibelius…SD reply

I have recently re-listened to the Lenny/Vienna DG Sibelius Symphonies, in order to better compare and contrast his readings with those of Maestro Vanska in the Grammy-nominated MO/S2+5, and was deeply moved by the depth and resonance of sound of the Vienna Orchestra. Though these are older recordings and there are some dated aspects to them (bleating flutes, for example) Vienna shows a unique character and strength in these recordings.
