When it was first released I listened to in on QOBUZ (Chandos was not on TIDAL or DEEZER Elite when it first came out).
Then it was no longer playable for over a year(only 30sec. demo in mp3 as it the trend on QOBUZ where albums are for sale but not streamable).
Now it's back along with most of the CHANDOS catalog that was not streamable before.
BIS too as much of the BIS catalog goes in and out.
Will give it another listen today as I really like the recording.
Had to turn up volume to get the bass "glow," and to hear the delicate string tremoli under the playful solo flute. Problem is, the strings become too loud in the climaxes.
I notice that Deneve is pretty straight-forward in the Paray/Ansermet mold, which, to be fair, is what Debussy wanted.
I still prefer Haitink's Vaseline-on-lens recording with the Concertgebouw.
That's one of the things I like about the entire set. And the strings really do blossom out in the climaxes ( but not too loudly for me).
