Hi John: Frank Shipway is not a well known conductor in North America. He is a very fine conductor....I have his Mahler 5th...a great recording (SACD), but I haven't heard his Shostakovich 10th. Have you heard Neeme Jarvi on Chandos or Stanislaw Skrowaczewski with the Halle on IMP? Two very outstanding recordings and I think much better sounding than the consensus of most reviewers who seem to lean toward Haitink and Karajan....Lee
