5.0 out of 5 stars A must have! July 18, 2007
This Miraculous Mandarin is quite possibly my favourite recording of it. Philly/Ormandy was what I thought of as the golden standard for quite a while, and even though I still think everyone needs to hear their recording, the Dutoit/OSM recording is for me more exciting and enjoyable. Mr. Crowley's interpretation of the decoy games is thrilling, and while Gigliotti's tone is as luminous and wonderful as it is on the Philly recording, this interpretation quite frankly makes for better listening and more musical sense, in my opinion. The brass sizzles in just the right way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your first is sometimes your best December 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
This was the first recording of Mandarin that I ever bought and it remains my favorite, despite some others' reservations. I'm a big Dutoit fan and this performance is brings out both the brutality and the inner beauty of the piece. It's still my favorite performance.

The Deux Portraits is incredibly beautiful here, and Dutoit's Divertimento is again my favorite performance regardless of a lot of stiff competition.

The London recording is well up to their usual impeccable standards.
