5.0 out of 5 stars
One of the great performances of this work, Oct. 23 1998
Charles Munch was conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra from the late 50's through the early 60's. He was most famous for her interpretations of French music, especially Berlioz. His performances are rich in color, expression, power and excitement. While there are many fine, newer recordings, there is probably no finer performance on disc of this work. And the sound, though vintage early '60's, used advanced recording techniques and is excellent.
