REVIEW:

This is a big orchestra for a big occasion and the DG engineers capture and blend it in a natural manner, never missing a detail, as borne out by glittering selections from Harry Potter, which are a joy to hear in these elegant, beautifully shaped performances. Dudamel’s love of the music and his grip on the form is never in doubt. This is a five-star celebration and a thanksgiving for a composer newly restored to health.
