I can't comment on your choices as I haven't heard and, with the exception of the Shostakovich, they are not really my thing.

 

However, if we are limited to classical released in 2016 then I've particularly enjoyed:

 

1.Tchaikovsky 4/Nutcracker Gergiev/Mariinsky ( in fact I've bought several more Mariinsky SACD releases on the back of this one, the SQ has been exceptional on all I've heard to date)

2.Butterworth various pieces BBC NOW BIS

3. Mendelssohn 5 Gardiner/LSO

4. Elgar 1 Barenboim Staatskapelle Berlin Decca

5. Tchaikovsky 6 Honeck Pittsburgh SO Reference Recordings

Agree on the Gergiev and Mendelssohn, and need to check out the others. Thanks for sharing!

Do they plan to publish Putin's buddy Gergiev live from Palmyra? Suppose it will be a huge hit. Even more, if it will be added with Part Two recorded by Islamic State Orchestra after mujaheads recaptured city and threw russians away.
