Who are your favorites - past and present?
I have been betting my money on Pappano lately getting his Tchaikovsky, his Rachmaninov with Andsnes and his Verdi Requiem. But I don't know this repertoire enough to really tell how good he is - I just like it so far.
The Sawallisch Schumann was better for me than the HIPsters Gardiner and Harnoncourt. I guess I like really Romantic Romanticism...
(This is not my core repertoire at all - so this is probably about all that I can contribute with here.)
