Hugo Alfven's Swedish Rhapsody

[weather|sunny][water|6 @ 1755h]
[mood|annoyed][music|  Kiri Te Kanawa - Mozart's Die Zauberflote: Ach, Ich Fuhl]

Okay, WHY can't I find a decent version of Swedish Rhapsody? Why does every single version out there remind me of toe-nail clipping, cousin dating and banjo picking on the front porch of a hillbilly hick-town? I've played this with an orchestra and I remember it sounding very very "elegant European countryside".

I may break down and buy a CD... *gasp* paying money for the natural phenomenon of soundwaves hitting my eardrums... what am I thinking?
