In 1947, Sir Eugene Goosens gave the first performance of this composition that documents the Austrailian Aboriginal dance known as a Corroboree. In 1960, Goosens and the London Symphony Orchestra recorded for Everest this magnificent - possibly the best ever - performance of Corroboree, even better than the famous EMI recording of the same piece from 1977.

Reviewer: Phil
This is not one of the "master compositions" of our time, but it is en enjoyable work. Modern but not overly dissonant: not "hard" to listen to. As such I will review the performance (excellent) and sonic (outstanding):

Performance: Excellent precussionist, very strong orchestral playing from what would be considered a "second tier" orchestra. As such the playing has moments of brilliance and moments where they seem to be just trying to get through: all -in-all well done.

Sonics: Excellent throughout, some of the best I've every heard at times (note: I have most of the biggies). The opening 3-minutes is mind-blowing: excellent low-level information recovery, accurate, lively, exciting sound. Similar to the playing this mellows out at times, but never drops below excellent.

If you are into vinyl for sound quality you MUST have this record. If you are a 20th century classical music aficionado you also must have this record. Others can probably live wihtout
