To my great delight, it is now out and available.

BSO also did a solid reading of Stravinsky's Rite under long-time music director, Seiji Ozawa; but this one takes the cake, easily.

His is a propulsive, exciting performance, and the Boston Symphony sound great, very tight.

I have this recording on tape and vinyl. I was forever looking for it on CD. It did appear briefly in the digital format, but soon went OOP. So Bravo to DG to reissue this gem. Definitely a Collection Du Millenaire! The star of this offering is the MTT/BSO Rite of Spring. MTT was 27 when he recorded this. If you have Stravinsky's own effort from 1962 with the Columbia Symphony, take a listen. See how close MTT comes to how the great man would have wanted his score rendered. MTT had worked with Stravinsky in LA before his move to BSO at the age of 24. So he knew the composer and it would seem had a sound understanding of this most complex orchestral score. A Rite in wrong hands is often a disaster, but this one? WOW!!! It was recorded in 1972, a year after Stravinsky's death. Perhaps, a personal tribute from MTT? It surely would have made Stravinsky proud. The conducting is superb, the playing electrifying and the capture by DG engineers is fantastic. This formidable performance pulls you right into the music and the savage sacrificial tale. You cannot press stop till the final note. Like Tchaikovsky's 1st symphony performance from MTT/BSO this Rite is another gem from the same era. Mr. Hurwitz & Co. take note! This is a 10/10 reference performance! BRAVO!!! MTT/BSO & DG.

It is almost 1:00 AM and I am downloading to iTunes my own LP-to-CD recording of this GREAT performance of the Rite of Spring and Zvezdoliki ("King of the Stars") and I decided, once again, to see if it had been released on CD yet. To my great delight, it is now out and available. In my limited survey, no other performance of Le Sacre measured up to this great one with Tilson Thomas. My collection includes Valery Gergiev, Pierre Boulez, Simon Rattle, Antal Dorati, and Charles Dutoit -- all acquired in a futile attempt to find a substitute for this performance. I'm so pleased this is now available.

I hesitated quite a while before choosing a star rating on this one, but finally decided on four rather than five. If there were a four-and-a-half choice I would have taken it. First, I cannot speak to the Petrushka performance since I have never heard it, but I far prefer the original 1911 version to the 1947 re-write included here.

As for the other two works, well...what can I say? The Sacre performance is absolutely among the best to be heard in my experience. (This despite one odd choice that Thomas makes, altering Stravinsky's rhythm in one measure of "Spring Rounds.") And heaven knows I've heard plenty, having begun life as a bassoonist way back when, who even played the principal part (with that hair-raising opening solo) in a performance in the mid-1970s and who also conducted a couple of reading rehearsals of it ten years later. I grew up with the Boulez/Cleveland LP that was taped somewhere around 1971, but this even trumps that legendary disc. One of the great things about this performance is the way it was recorded. DGG's work in Symphony Hall was really exemplary, reaching unmatched heights of beauty and realism in this and in the Steinberg/Hindemith recording from around the same time. In both cases, producer Thomas Mowrey (who specialized in making completely natural-sounding recordings) and his wizard-like engineers managed to create a sound picture that allows us to hear pretty much everything while never sounding dry or clinical. You have been placed in Symphony Hall itself, just as it sounds, which is really saying something (this is one of the two or three finest concert halls in the world). Some may call the result over-resonant, but I disagree; it's how the hall sounds.

And the orchestra? Incredible, as anyone would expect.
