BERLIOZ: The Damnation of Faust – Boston Sym. Orch./Tanglewood Festival Chorus/soloists /Seiji Ozawa – Pentatone (2 discs)
Brilliant performance and another in a very exciting series.
TCHAIKOVSKY: Ballet Suites from Swan Lake, The Nutcracker & The Sleeping Beauty – Vienna Philharmonic Orch./ Herbert von Karajan – Decca Pure Audio Blu-ray
These 1962 recordings, while not the most groomed in ensemble, still remain in a class all by themselves.
