What is everyone's favorite recording of the Sibelius concerto? I'll start...I recently purchased Isaac Stern's 1969 recording...it's greeeeaaat (do I owe royalty to Tony the Tiger?) He plays with such passion as he maintains such demand of the piece and the instrument. Another note, all of the Sul G passages are so clear and robust with none of that excess sliding we hear so much nowadays. Also his chords are like little bursts of energy...great stuff, I recommend this!
