Notes & Reviews:

"...DG's recording job, made in good old Medinah Temple rather than Orchestra Hall, is everything you could wish for. This is now my 'Ecstasy' of choice, ranked right up there with the tremendously powerful Muti (EMI)...Developments in recording technique really do mean something in this roof-raising score...I was able to hear the tam-tam and chime-strokes coming through the general onslaught for the first time...[This is] one of [Boulez's] finest records of recent years." -Ashby, ARG
