Hi all,

Which release do you prefer or recommend me?

Shostakovich: New Babylon


SWR Rundfunkorchester
Frank Strobel
(How complete is this recording? Hänssler 2-cd)

Or

Basel Sinfonietta
Mark Fitz-Gerald
(World Premiere Recording of the Complete Score Naxos 2-cd)

Thanks! Hope you can help me out

The Naxos one for sure. It uses as close to the original composition as possible.
The Hanssler (and the other previous recording on Capriccio) use a bigger orchestra than Shostakovich intended as well.

That said, I do recommend tracking down the 7CD box set on Capriccio that includes it if you can find it.
