This here is a superb recording, displaying both the awesome power and the great beauty that this orchestra was capable of under Reiner. Buy this for the pieces themselves, as this is one of the best renditions of the Roman tone poems (although Roman Festivals is missing) and a great and moving reading of La Mer. But also buy these to hear for yourself the earlier days of a great tradition of musical excellence that was and still is the Chicago Symphony!
