. . . Solti's "Symphony of a Thousand" is nothing short of electrifying, from the opening, explosive organ chord, full-blooded choral singing, an amazing soloist line-up and articulate, expressive orchestral playing. A grand occasion full of passion and tension. And it really is spectacularly recorded.
