A magnificent performance of a magnificent and exciting masterpiece. This was recorded live at the Barbican; and has all the thrills of a live performance but with the clarity and immediacy of a studio recording. You won't be disappointed. I think it's marginally better than this orchestra/choir/conductor's 1990 version (which won accolades at the time).
