Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"I haven't heard Boulez's earlier 'Bluebeard', but can't imagine the orchestral playing was any finer than the Chicago's is here or the recording better-balanced or more "present"...I can't remember hearing the Chicago Symphony in finer form, or coached to greater blend or interpretive subtleties. But when the Fifth Door opens, revealing a splendid view of Bluebeard's vast territories, strings and brass come together in a stunning series of climaxes...treasurable..." -Ashby, ARG
