This is my favourite Fiedler / Boston Pops LP. It predates the better known Karajan / Berlin recording and exudes all the panache and elan that this music needs to make its full impact. Good as the Karajan is, this is better! RCA surpass DG sonically and Fiedler, thoroughly committed, has just that little bit more verve and swagger than Karajan.
