DEBUSSY: Nocturnes (Nuages, Fetes and Sirenes) -Los Angeles Philharmonic, Esa-Pekka Salonen, conductor (Sony 58952)
Dvorak's beery and boisterous Carnival Overture launches the Los Angeles Philharmonic into this concert, and his sublime final symphony wraps it with a bow. In between, lying like a diamond in a long-closed box, is a jewel of a piece that's almost never taken out: Szymanowski's First Concerto.
