Customer Reviews

One of the best perfomances of this symphony ever!

The pace and energy never wane in this performance by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Daniel Barenboim keeps the orchestra's sound balanced and tight. The organ of the Chartes Cathedral was recorded in a separate session from the orchestra back in the days of pure analog recording, yet the synchronization between the two sessions is flawless. The recording does not show its age, and the performance is timeless!

I have waited for a re release of the recording

Having this album on vinyl as a college student, I played it out! I was overjoyed to see it on itunes. This is the finest and tightest performance of this work than can often have a "sentimental" yet sloppy performance. The Chicagoans do this french work proud with midwest flair, a sense of craftmanship, and, as always, the brass section is outrageously good!

Great, but organ is out of tune.

The only thing about this recording that bothers me is that the orchestra didn't tune to the organ--the organ is sharp to the orchestra! Every time it comes in it soudns funky. I mean, yes its cool that its the Chartres organ, but if it's out of tune, who cares! Other than that this recording is great.
