Berlioz - Great Orchestral Works - Davis, London Symphony Orchestra

 


 

 

 

 

Review:

Colin Davis’s Berlioz cycle, a monument of the LP era, continues to sound well Sir Colin Davis on CD through its intrinsically musical qualities: wide dynamic spectrum, intelligent balance, and the energy, tenderness and sure tempi of the premier Berlioz conductor of our time. The overtures sparkle, the symphonies run the gamut from the nostalgic to the grotesque. With the Symphonie funèbre and Harold there is no more satisfying version; alternatives for the Fantastique include two fine period-instrument recordings, but Davis is a must for any collection. Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 5 (out of 5)-- Julian Rushton, BBC Music Magazine
