[Varèse / "Ameriques"]: Essential . . . This is the most meticulously prepared and stylishly executed of the available readings . . . Chailly realises that more can be less, and the weight of the piece rests on a delicate internal balance of textures and harmonic colour . . . [Chailly negotiates Varèse's] coexisting zones of time with surgical precision . . . Chailly gives himself plenty of licence to mine Varese's layers of detail. Those melismatic percussion paragraphs that characterise the score skip with a balletic lilt, the snare drum player articulating with Buddy Rich-like crispness.
