GREAT PERFORMANCE - GREAT PERFORMANCE - GREAT PERFORMANCE
This was an excellent recording. I have listened to this about 4 times since I bought it....just a beautiful conversion. (Interestingly, I listened to the same recording on Naxos Classics Online Streaming...sounded like a compressed MP3...no depth) High Def Tape Transfers is the way to go...superb quality...tremendous depth
Bernstein's direction is very good here. Rhapsody in Blue is played as a large ensemble, as usual, but this version really goes from quiet to very boisterous - moreso than I've heard from other recordings. The sound quality is, as usual, seemingly perfect.
