One to look out for as the NHK / Järvi partnership seems to work in a very special way; the previous three recordings of their partnership can make claims to being amongst the best and most realistic sounding SA-CD available with the caveat "at a price" of course

Actually there are 5 previous Jarvi/NHKs - the 3 Strauss and more recently Mahler 6 and Mussorgsky, which I haven't heard. How do they hold up as performances/interpretations?

There are indeed five previous releases Tony. It is hard to generalise one's assessment of five discs in a single sentence but these days Paavo Järvi's performances with the NHK orchestra with whom he seems to have established a very special synergistic understanding, are beyond reproach and without reflection on what I may have written at the times of their releases, would argue that each disc is close to being a clear first choice for the repertoire without resorting to the idiosychrasies of (say) a Fischer.

His performances with the Bremen and Frankfurt ensembles on the Sony label usually do not achieve quite the dizzy heights of his outings to Tokyo but arguably the repertoire has been less accommodating of his natural flair and exuberance. Nevertheless his earlier Beethoven survey at Bremen is arguably the best on disc and a severe challenge to von Karajan with maybe the exception of the 'Choral'.

He's looking a little greyer ;-)
