These recordings are all in very good sound, and extraordinary interpretations they are. The Don Juan is very dramatic, with wide dynamic range. Till Eulenspiegel was one of Furtwängler's specialties and one of the works he conducted most often. It is hard to pick the best one among his recordings, but I feel there no better one than this. The Sinfonia Domestica comes from the same concert as the Beethoven Violin Concerto and the sound is very good. Unfortunately, I must confess that I do not like this work. But you won't go wrong with this interpretation.
