This 1979 recording manages to create the best overall balance throughout at four contrasting sections. During the fist, Ozawa skilfully demonstrates how to let the noisy children have fun in the grounds of the Villa Borghese while keeping them under control, summoning plenty of glitter from the percussion department, and maintaining an appropriately lively tempo . . . While he misses no details, Ozawa certainly never overdoes them . . . Ozawa also knows how to sustain the final gigantic crescendo that brings the marching Roman army to the victorious final bar, aided at all times by the rich and sonorous quality of this superbly-engineered Deutsche Grammophon recording. Ozawa pours the full sheen and brilliance of the Boston Symphony Orchestra over the rich score and the end result really is truly overwhelming.
