 Thrilling, unique, passionate August 15, 2014 By Barron H. (AUSTIN, TX) See All My Reviews "When one of the very best orchestras in the world sets it's mind to play something well, despite whatever interpretive qualms one may have, you at least know the music will sound glorious. The vividness and clarity of this disc is astounding. I don't know many recordings that do the VPO and their golden hall as much justice as this RCA recording. Talk about a demo disc!!! Performance wise, I love it. I haven't heard a Bolero this exciting or powerful EVER!! The Vienna gods prove here that they can not be boxed into the B's: Beethoven , Brahms, Bruckner, or just consigned to anything written before 1930. Maazel does this repertoire with such style. Don't think twice about grabbing this one...it may make you like Bolero, too!" Report Abuse
