As disappointing as I found Kuchar’s “Classical” Symphony, I think he does a wonderful job in the second – indeed, the best recorded performance I know (my previous favorite, Järvi on Chandos). The textures of the first movement don’t gum up and he manages to impart a terrific sense of pace, although the composer ultimately louses him up. I recommend the disc for the Second and for the Autumnal Sketch. The sound is quite good.
