Leonard Bernstein - Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique 180 Gram Vinyl LP

Leonard Bernstein was one of the most recorded conductor/composers in history and whereas most of his work was released on CBS (Sony) and Deutsche Grammophon, during the 1970s several notable EMI recordings came out of his association with the Orchestre National de France (including Berlioz’s Harold in Italy).

Recorded in the famous Salle Wagram, Paris, the Berlioz Fantastique was produced and engineered by John Mordler and Paul Vavasseur respectively.

In the original 1977 review of the Mussorgsky John Warwick in the GRAMOPHONE wrote: 
"This is excellent... One necessary ingredient of a true performance of the Fantastic Symphony is the sense of virtuoso conductor responding to virtuoso composer; but Bernstein also holds fast to the essential point that the virtuosity is of imagination as well as expression... I would regard this as the most interesting performance of the symphony now on record. It has a character individually its own; it is reflective and exhilarating; it is exquisitely played; it is sensitively recorded."
