I've only got a Pickwick 33 budget reissue but recall how surprised I was in terms of fidelity. ( .50 cent find at a thrift store! ) And yes I agree most classical Capitol offerings have been poor from other records I have. I have to wonder what they did to them cuz, their popular titles are much nicer. Sinatra, Cole et all...
Very "Hollywood bound" ( Franz Waxman Rebecca-esque :) ) but certainly colourful and entertaining.
Tempo is slower than Canteli's but it's expressive and dreamy, keeping luxurious feel and touch of mystery throughout. I know you do not like this type of meaningless adjectives but sorry I don't know how else to articulate it!
