BERLIOZ Symphonie fantastique Boulez 4534322

The turbo-charged potential of the modern orchestra is released here with Boulez's usual expert control . . . as Berlioz introduces his "idée fixe", Boulez does a splendid job of conveying both her shapeliness and the feelings that arouses. Boulez's sense of symphonic shape is compelling: nobody makes a better case for "Symphonie fantastique" as a musical structure . . . there's a feeling of playful irony . . .

La excelente toma sonora data de 1996 y la interpretación cumple de sobra con los mínimos exigibles.
