I own only this recording of the "Organ" symphony, so I have no points of comparison, but it seems fine to me. The only question I might have is why, when the organ comes in like gangbusters in the Maestoso section of the second movement, the orchestra hasn't been afforded a bit more presence earlier in the aural picture. That said, though, the orchestra is well-recorded, and the textures of the individual instruments and groups come through well. Dutoit's pacing seems to me just right -- the adagio section of the first movement (really the "slow movement" of the symphony) is played with great feeling and a grave beauty -- the highlight of the piece, for all the organ shenanigans later. The first part of the second movement is really the "scherzo" of the piece -- it's absolutely delightful and is played with great spirit here. The final movement has plenty of weight, and Hurford makes his presence felt. The conversation, if that's the word, between the organ and the brass late in the symphony is pretty hair-raising, and I think it's the double-bassoon who makes his presence felt soon after. It gets close to the feeling of The Great Gate of Kiev by the end! A fine performance, then, of an ingenious and substantive symphony, that works by subtle thematic transformations rather than in the conventional manner. The filler is a good performance of the "Carnival of the Animals." It was recorded with a different group (small) in a different location and acoustic two years before the symphony. You might want to adjust the volume control.
