Notes & Reviews:

For Claudio Abbado, the European youth orchestras he founded and conducted were always an affair of the heart. With them he could live out his enthusiasm without compromising either quality or repertoire. And the results were met with equal enthusiasm by press and public alike.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Orfeo's recorded sound is excellent, not just "honest FM broadcast stereo" but approaching commercial recording quality. The miking is definitely closer in the Moussorgsky.
