Long have I admired this performance, which I acquired on cassette about fifteen years ago. I always took it with me on long trips, although nowadays rental cars do not come equipped with tape players, so I do need the CD.

Once, taking a sidetrip from CES to visit the Hoover Dam, I had it on and just as I came over the rise that allows a first glimpse of that magnificent valley, the music of the third movement arrived at its glorious climax of full-bore bright sunshine. I just pulled off the road and thrilled at the coincidence of beauty.

It was one of my most memorable musical experiences ever.

And the tour of the dam itself did not diminish by comparison; it too was a life highlight.
