I listened to quite a few interpretations of this fantastic piece of music already and I always come back to Christian Ferras with Berlin Philharmonic (DG). No specious virtuosity, just wonderful musical sense and cantilena, especially in the 1st movement. Outstanding! Kory, have you already listened to that one?

I've just been getting reacquainted with the 3rd Symphony of Roy Harris. Seventeen (or so) minutes of concentrated wonder with the sound of the prairies and some great brass and tympani fugato. I've four recordings of this, from Koussevitzky's first recording of it in Boston, Howard Hanson's Rochester Mercury from the 50s, and a couple by Leonard Bernstein in New York. His later DG version has better sound than the 1960s CBS but the performance seems to me to be at a lower voltage. What the CBS recording does give you is a cinemascope sound stage that really suits the music. (This will certainly feature on my Classical You Tube channel at some point Wink).
