BERLIOZ Symphonie fantastique Colin Davis, cond; Royal Concertgebouw O PENTATONE 5186 184 (Hybrid multichannel SACD: 55:36)


Sir Colin’s 1974 Fantastique remake—updating a mid-1960s account with the LSO—balances classicizing Read more primness and romantic abandon with glowing finesse, tilting a bit toward the former, where the LSO version favored the latter. Both performances are primary for any Berlioz collection. Relevant here, this was a splendid recording in stereo—panoramic and spacious, yet keenly detailed—but was also captured in quad, which tapes have been lifted from the archive to make this hybrid SACD. In comparison, already great sound blossoms on the SACD with rich particularity. Enthusiastically recommended.
