Dan,

It's times like this I wish I was super rich, like J.K. Rowling, so I could just get in my Leer G5 Jet, and fly to the NSO and see "Scheherazade" and "Saint-Saens Symphone #3 - Organ" wonderful classical presentations live and in person... :D But then, I probably would never want to leave my incredible, "money-is-no-object" HT system, if I was super rich... No, I would still want to go see the live performance anyway... :p ;) :D

I have the RCA LS versions of Schaherazade and Saint-Saen's, and the NSO versions that night was so close it was scary. The acoustics at the Strathmore is superb and I highly recommend anyone in this area to attend a show there at the Music Center. The stand alone organ used for Symphony #3 filled this great music hall amazingly.

Everyone needs to go out and hear live music to get reference points for what real music should sound like.
