Notes & Reviews:

Note: This title is rare and is considered a collector’s item. It is priced according to its common market value. If the record label that it is on goes on sale, it will also be reduced in price.

"Do you know the Turangalila Symphony and its mad melange of orchestral power, swooning ondes-martenot lines, and saccharine beauty? Especially if you take out Previn's recording---without a doubt the finest rendition ever put on records...I dare you to escape the clutches of its overwhelming ecstasies and gothic power...you can't afford to be without [it] if you care one jot for 20th-Century music." -Ashby, ARG
