 Excellent performance and remastering July 19, 2014 By William Moore (San Jose, CA) See All My Reviews "I bought this on Cassette tape in the early 1980's and after I wore it out, I found another and another. In the 1990's I finally killed my last cassette and attempted to find a similar or equal. Even Maazel's digital performance (Vienna Philharmonic) lay limp and unsatisfying in the dust bin of banal performances. In 2010 I found this recording on vinyl and started the painful process of digitizing it myself and removing every bump and skip bit by bit. It was so tedious that I gave up both the project and hope until one day I stumble upon ArkivMusic and what do you know? One of the finest recordings I thought lost or only a ghost of itself is still with us today! All three pieces are so precise and stunning, as full of energy and vibrant; I imagine Debussy intended them to be thus. ArkivMusic is a treasure trove!" Report Abuse
