Two I can recommend wholeheartedly:
Another that is wonderful is Fiedler and the Boston Pops (believe it or
not). However, it no longer seems to be available, at least in the US.
All of these performances have a strong dance quality to them, instead of
the treacle that has been poured all over this poor, defenseless work.
I've not heard Horenstein on Chesky, but I'd be willing and eager to chance
it. Horenstein's work fascinates me.
Never having had a score of this piece, I can't tell you if repeats have
been omitted. [I thought you had bowed out of that discussion, again.
