    Reviews :

    “The Boston Symphony play for Ozawa as they did for Munch, that is with flair and commitment from each section. The surround-sound is clean and satisfying, despite being now more than forty years old. The first movement’s largo opening is evocatively done, expressive in its response to the detailed markings but it is still slightly classical in feeling. It reminds us that Berlioz’s gods were Gluck, Beethoven and Weber, and that his champion Liszt’s innovations lie a long way ahead. Perhaps though the last piu animato could have a touch more abandon. There is no exposition repeat.

    The ball scene dances gaily, and there is a nice presence to the important harp parts and good balance when the idée fixe waltzes onto the scene. I do though miss the cornet part here which most conductors of the era – and since – omit. The slow movement is very successful in its chaste way, from a fine cor anglais at the start to a poetic coda, though with the timpani’s distant thunder fractionally closer than some. The bassoons chortle grimly in the march to the scaffold and the Boston brass are terrific here and again in the finale, which has very tangible bells. Overall this is an excellent mainstream interpretation, one of the best of its time and viable still. » Musicweb International Review by Roy Westbrook
