5.0 out of 5 stars Well recorded Romeo from a mature Davis (the Berlioz expert) 30 April 2004
By R. Lane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Philips DUO series is probably the most consistently excellent of all of the double-cd series from the major classical labels, and this issue is a great example of that excellence.
This is the second recording Colin Davis made for Philips of the of Berlioz Dramatic Symphony. The first was made in 1968 with the London Symphony Orchestra and an excellent team of soloists. The earlier recording is only available as part of an integral box of the Davis Berlioz cycle (Amazon asin # B00000C2FD with the other choral works). That recording had the market to itself for many years and still holds its own now.
The recording in this DUO issue was issued in 1996. It was made with the Vienna Philharmonic, and is just as good as the first. Only the name Thomas Moser rings a bell for me as a familiar voice among the solists. Olga Borodina and Alastair Miles are excellent also though, and Davis brought in the choir from the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra for the recording, probably because of his greater familiarity with them than with the usual Vienna choral groups. From that you can get the picture that Philips went to great lengths to bring the best forces together for the remake. The reading from Davis is hardly different from the ealier recording, and the recorded sound is top notch. For Philips to turn around and issue it at mid price 6 years later in 2002 is an example why I give them great marks for the DUO series.
Add some Overtures from the Berlioz cycle of the 1970s and you've got a great bargain.
Why didn't they issue this in the USA though? I find it hard to fathom such choices sometimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A first-rate account of the main work, but the prize should go to the overtures 22 Jan 2009
By G.D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Colin Davis' Berlioz has in general tended to draw some rave reviews from the critics, and while I am not always in agreement with them, I have to admit that this is probably the best version of the sprawling and flawed but ultimately rather rewarding work available. His abilities to draw various color nuances - darker ones, in particular - from the orchestra, especially the wind section, are marvelous. The soloists are in general good, too, and overall this urgent reading should warrant a safe recommendation.

But Davis and Berlioz at their best come in the selection of overtures. These are thrillingly executed, drawing some spectacular playing from the orchestra. And how varied but consistently good they sound in these performances; Le Corsaire is utterly thrilling, King Lear bold and dark, Waverley is spectacularly and wistfully majestic, Béatrice et Bénédict hugely enjoyable, Les Francs Juges dazzlingly glorious. Overall, this is a safe recommendation even if it makes a strong case for the claim that Berlioz simply wasn't at his best in the large scale works he was so fond of writing but rather in the shorter always superbly orchestrated overtures.
