Thanks. I heard the Symphonie Fantastique recording on an old L.P. at school last lear. I was amazed by how huge and gorgeous the sound was from Deck and Pilafian, and how crisp and together the Philharmonic was. I have heard other recordings of this and usually hear weird interpretation, intonation issues, or ensemble things that I'm not crazy about. The NYP/Mehta recording really caught my ear though. Interpretation was right on (in my opinion)as was everything else. Do you know if it is available somehow? Thanks.
