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

Thanks, those were the details I was after. Listened to the Roth this morn: still think Munch '54 captures

the wonder, mysteriousness, and darker, danker elements better, such as the low harp plucks and string glissandi transitioning into the opening of the Sunrise theme.

The original instruments weren't as clarifying as I'd hoped, but the opening flute solo was very transporting, boring bits of the first act still a bit boring. A very "bright" take on the entire sunrise scene, much like Monteux's but not as expedient: very sensitive phrasing/shaping of the long lines over the woodwinds warbling. (I listened to Cluytens in the same section and he takes it as a faster clip; not my preference.)

I had the Boulez on Lp and thought he made the best case for Act One.
