Notes & Reviews:
"This is a thrilling set to have one marvelling afresh at the electric vitality of Berlioz's inspiration, and marvelling too that the formidable problems of recording so massive a work have been accomplished so confidently. It is a tribute to the performance and the beauty of the recording, as well as to Berlioz, that this massive four hours of music seems so short, with no longueurs whatsoever. This is a historic set that takes its place among the great Berlioz recordings and it is good news that Dutoit will now be tackling more major Berlioz works, including other operas." -Gramophone
