Repin plays the original intro to the burleske. This guy was never taught that humans generally can't play so brutally well. So he does.
Wiener Philharmoniker steps up to the plate and swings mightily, filling the room with an appropriately Francis Bacon-sounding backdrop at times,
other times making the gentlest waves of soothe. If you're unfamiliar with Vadim Repin please change that now. This may not be the highest quality (192 kbps) recording as far as sound fidelity goes, but none of that matters- It just doesn't. Select the scherzo, pull up on the volume control a bit, get ready to smile.

Thanks to Manuel for this.
his original links are also in the comments, which include an alternate recording, equally if not more powerful (with concomitantly worse sound, I lament!)
But remember. Your business is rejoicing. Your business is rejoicing. ;)
