Outstanding work from Shaw and the Atlanta Symphony
Like the previous reviewer, I believe this recording of the Carmona Burana is the standard by which all recordings of this work should be measured. Shaw is at the peak of his game, and the symphony, chorus, and soloists all blow the doors off the hall. Credit, too, to the Atlanta Boy Choir, under the sub-direction of Fletcher Wolfe, who add the right touch of childish innocence to this work. Buy this recording and hear this work as it was meant to be heard.
Definitive version. Plus, you can get it on Amazon for $3.96 and at 256 kbs. =)
This is the Album whichI judge all others. I think that this body of work is the best that there if to offer. There have been many to try but this is the only one that can stand up in my book. It is just perfection to me!!! I hope that all would agree.
