Highlights for me are a Zubin Mehta recording of Pictures and a Previn recording of Prokofiev 6th. Both are exemplary.

I'm one of his greatest admirers, but - in particular - I find that Dies Irae rendition to be disturbing. I hope the music director told him to do that, and that it wasn't his own idea.

It’s like someone asked the brass section to put a ton of front on their sound and then the recording engineer dialed it back. So many recordings need to be discounted due to overzealous engineering and mixing.

It was wild.
One of the pitches was even split (2nd tuba, or Mr. Bobo?)

It is often said that if you can't say something nice.................................. I wouldn't spend good money for this recording is about as nice as I can think of.

Just listened to it. I only hear one tuba, playing the 1st part. Typical tight/bright Bobo sound.
Bobo always sounded like he wanted to play louder than the tuba/mpc would let him play...
That said, sounds like a bootleg recording of the live perfomance.

Something tells me that he may (??) have had some sort of epiphany (as did many of us, yes?) when he reached "middle age".

When I heard him in-person performing a Berlioz overture with the LAPO (and earlier that day playing several excerpts with the trombones in a recital hall) playing his B&S F tuba, he sounded NOTHING like this on ANYTHING that he played.

I have a recording of LA, on London, playing all Liszt.Battle of the Huns, Orpheus, and Mazeppa with Mehta. The playing on Battle of the Huns is just like that Fantastique recording. You can probably find it on YouTube. Ed
