Ravel: Boléro; La Valse; Rapsodie espagnole; Debussy: Images for Orchestra (CD)

Boston Symphony Orchestra

$16.99

There could be no better introduction to the sound of the Boston Symphony, in the repertoire in which it became most famous, than this French collection with Charles Munch.

Sometimes wild and unpredictable in concert performances, Munch's conducting here is both visceral yet elegant, full of mystery when called for and unbridled in its passion at other times. Again, these are recordings which, since their first release in the 1950s, have become the references in the field.
