This 1969 Ozawa Boston Sym. "Carmina" ( recorded four years prior to his appointment as BSO music director ) is FAR preferable to his much later - late 80's version with The Berlin Philharmonic on Philips. Speeds are just right here, the Berlin one is much too fast and less joyous. Indeed, one should be far more moved here. The 1969 analog sound is excellent ( the sound seems to get just a wee bit better with each subsequent re-issue ). I will even go so far as to say that this IS THE "Carmina" to get. A great performance indeed. The fact that this recording has NEVER been out of print since its' very first Lp incarnation should attest to that.

There's a reason this 1969 recording has never gone out of print--it's the definitive version for most people across the spectrum of taste. It is a dynamic, forceful and dramatic reading that gives space to the individual sections without losing the architecture of the broader whole. Rhythmically peppy, it is pretty well together without dragging the tempo, a considerable achievement with so many different choral forces involved. The singing by the boys' chorus is especially good and well captured for once. Foremost among the soloists is the great opera baritone Sherrill Milnes, who sings authoritatively and covers the music's demands from full-voiced gusto to mixed-voice and falsetto delicacy--all with fine clarity and diction. The section where he and the boys' chorus echo one another and then sing together is a delight. Poor Stanley Kolk has the tenor-killer aria (some recordings substitute a different voice); he lands all the notes and sings with the right attitude for the text. The part is so gruellingly written I've yet to hear a tenor really pull this passage off with perfect security without having to belt it out like the town cryer, and this version is no different. Evelyn Mandac sings the very high soprano part about as well as it can be sung. The whole effort has the feel of a live performance, it's done with so much verve and gusto--it nearly threatens to spin out of control once or twice, but never does. Very deserving of RCA's Red Seal and then Gold Seal designations of quality!

I havn't heard ALL of the Carmina Burana's but I went through at least three before I settled on this one as my favorite. The tempo is right, the sound quality is fantasitc, and the performance is top notch. Every time I listen to this CD it sends me on an emotional roller coaster ride. I highly recommend it.

Carmina Burana is one of those works that truly surprises and fills one's hart with emotions. This version of this composition is so well done in every aspect that if you are considering to have this work, I think is the choice to make, not only the singers are great, but the orchesta is also superb, and the quality of the recording really amazes me. Is because of all this that I give it a 5 start review.

There is much to recommend this: It was very well recorded in 1969, and the sound quality holds up quite well, being open and spacious (though not as good as some more recent ones). Ozawa's direction is generally good, and he finds the basic character of each piece, along with a suitable atmosphere of medieval mystery. Singers and chorus are generally fine. But his persistently slow tempos in many sections deprive the work of much of its energy and festive atmosphere, which is really fundamental to the work. The result sounds a little square and overly cautious.

More recommendable recordings are Slatkin on RCA, for one of the best combinations of conducting, outstandingly fine singing, and good recording. Mehta's recording is even finer in terms of sound quality, and nearly as well sung as Slatkin's; Mehta also finds great zest and lovely melodicism. Jochum's account on DGG, in just slightly dated sound, can also be mentioned because it is often considered a classic or "definitive" recording, though his singers have been outclassed in some instances.
