Ravel: Daphnis et Chloe - Munch        (4 of 4 found this review helpful)
  Review by Monteverdi October 13, 2004

Recorded in stereo on January 23 & 24, 1955 in Symphony Hall, the great Charles Munch, leading the superb Boston Symphony and New England Conservatory and Alumni Choruses (Robert Shaw, director), gave us what continues to be the most completely realized performance the score may ever have.

  Review by flyingdutchman October 12, 2004

I can quite honestly say that I disagree most competely with the previous review. This is an absolutely vital must-buy for anyone wanting to hear how these should sound. Performance is beyond any that came before or after and sound is the best I have ever heard these. I have the Living Stereo Cd, ... more
