    I caught the concert last night (Saturday), and I heartily concur. You may want to know that Dutoit also recorded Petroushka with the London Symphony Orchestra about 41 years ago, in 1976. That recording, on Deutsche Grammophon, is probably not as well-known as the one he recorded for the London label ca. 1986. I have a slight preference for the earlier recording myself.

    All that said, Maestro Dutoit surely has this music in his bones. A very sturdy conductor considering he’s now 80 years old!
