Thank you, Andrea for having posted this. A fellow listener, henryflower found them
"...outstanding. I think it's instantly become my performance of choice for those works. So much energy and drive, such great woodwind detail..."

Here Georges Prêtre, who came into this world in 1924, leads what wiki calls "one of the oldest musical institutions in the world" and together they bring the smackdown in such a way as to shame all comers.

Yes, yes yes.
