Maybe you think you don't need Sir Colin's latest thoughts on Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique? It's his fourth recording after all, but this has all the electricity of a live occasion, with Davis's extraordinary instinct, and the orchestra hanging on his every gesture. No need to worry about recording quality either; perhaps the biggest compliment I can pay it is it doesn't sound like the Barbican. I wish I'd been there...but at least now I know what I missed.
