Wonderful performance and sound.
Wonderful selections by a great conducter.
A real hotch-potch this, derived from several venerable SXLs. All sound good, apart from the Rimsky piece, which sounds strangled and harsh. Not a virtuoso band or conductor, the Stravinsky Pulcinella sounds under-played and lacking neo-classical verve. The two Respighi pieces fare much better, and the Rossiniana makes for an unexpected and little-known delight.
