"I've found my perfect Rite! The first time I listened to it I was anxious to experience the full impact of the Telarc sound. So I skipped to just before the "Glorification Of The Chosen Victim".
As you know, that's where the orchestra bellows out 7 times, led by the tympani and bass drum. Every other conductor takes these 7 hair-raising crashes at about 2 to 3 beats per second. Not Maazel. He takes you vigorously through the crescendo. And then it seems as though he just stops! 1 second, 2 seconds of dead silence except for some fading echos. Then come the 7 loudest, deepest, most dramatic terror-filled blasts that could possibly exist among all of the recorded Rites. Huge sonic impact, perfect sound. I think Telarc must have placed a microphone INSIDE the bass drum!". - DS.
