Pretty much a perfect recording. With Varése, precision is the key to squeeze beauty out of what seems to be noise and Boulez is precision personified. Here he commands the CSO towards revolutionary soundscapes and thunderous climaxes, while retaining amazing transparency and detail. Ideal for testing out that pricey audio setup you just bought. Oh, you didn't? Well, this CD might convince you to.
