Colin Davis . . . a cultivé un certain classicisme intelligent doué d'une éloquence rare sur instruments modernes . . . Davis est certainement le plus doué des chefs dirigeant des phalanges modernes . . . les enregistrements Philips soulignent combien le musicien fut un génial interprète, à l'esprit et la vitalité électrisante. Il y a les incontournables de son (vaste) répertoire . . . un chef surtout taillé pour l'opéra, c'est un conteur né doué d'une prodigieuse faculté dramatique (voilà pourquoi son intensité dans l'"Oiseau de feu" de Stravinsky reste admirable : toujours avec le London Symphony Orchestra en 1979 ; le témoignage est éblouissant de sensibilité entre mystère et sensualité orientale. Un must) . . . Coffret de 15 cd incontournable.
