************ MULTICHANNEL DISC OF THE MONTH ************* This release is unbelievably spectacular in any category you care to name.
Exceptional performances of both works - a good fit for Gergiev's strong approach.

A beautiful recording from a well-established source, round number two from the Montpellier codex.
