This performance of the complete M10th sings and soars.

The Adagio and Finale in particular are achingly (and rapturously) beautiful, powerful, epic.

It's not my preferred way of looking at the 10th, but Segerstam does that type of approach really well - far better than Levine, who was just too glacial in the outer movements (and heavy footed in the inner ones). For the standard Cooke book version, I still like Berthold Goldschmidt's early performance of it the best. I like his own emendations to it, some of which Kurt Sanderling adopted.
