Considered one of the Meat and Potatoes pieces for orchestra, Munch runs through this one with a magnifying glass, and it’s interesting to hear him take sections of the piece with each section of the orchestra.
On hand to narrate, as always is Ben Grauer – and as always not a complete performance of the piece, but rather a half-hour fly-on-the-wall glimpse of the orchestra at work.
Rosin up the bow on this one.
