Given the conductor and the band, this recording of this wonderful product of Bizet's teenage years requires no further recommendation from me or anyone else.
This note is just to say that Sir Neville takes *all* of the repeats. Just to eliminate any possible ambiguity, that means the exposition repeats in both the first movement and the finale and the repeats of both halves in both the minuet (read scherzo) and trio. All of the first-time bars are played and no information is lost.
Buy, and enjoy.
