Format: Audio CD
Ever since I heard this on its release on vinyl, I have been utterly blown away by the accuracy and clarity of the Belshazzar's Feast. The drama and excitement is so vividly portrayed. Previn has a special magic with Walton (as he does with Vaughan Williams, also). The performance is without doubt the finest and most spectacular on record, the technical recording is demonstration standard, the remastering commendable. If you listen to the choir sing "Yea, we wept", you will hear the poignant passion captured to heart-rending perfection.
The performances of Scapino, Improvisations, and Portsmouth point are excellently sketched, proving once again that Previn is a master Waltonian. This is definitive Walton, thrillingly performed, and generously packaged.
This CD is a core classical collection must-have.

Addendum: 2012. This is now deleted from the EMI catalogue, a crying shame. Get any CD release of this recording while you can.
The Bryn Terfel/Andrew Davies live (last night of the proms 1994) version is the next best bet, or best alternative for live performance excitement.
Btw, I would even more highly recommend the DVD-Audio release of this Previn recording, if you can get it, and if your system will play it in quality surround sound.
