It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Please clarify--the orchestral blend, or... the recorded sound?

I am curious because while I have heard in the past the BSO play as well as they are now playing for Maestro Nelsons (and always with guest conductors, most notably Sir Colin Davis), I have never heard the BSO sound as lovely on recordings in, well, I dunno 50 years?

Barbirolli got wonderful sounds out of the BSO--Steinberg had his moments, and Munch of course brought the Koussevitzky sound into the stereo era.

But the way the BSO sounds now under Nelsons is I think amazing, and such a relief after the Levine years--and the new recordings are also light-years better than what the BSO put out in the Levine era, IMHO.
