The Boulez recordings of the orchestral works are quite good. But for me the best recording of Arcana is the Abravanel/Utah Symph from the 60's that were rereleased on CD sometime in the 80's. The best performance I've ever heard of Octandre (which just might be the most perfect short piece of music in the 20C IMHO) was never recorded as far as I know... Jim Tenney conducted a performance in the '60's at NYU as part of his Tone Roads series of concerts. I can still hear it now....

So does this mean you're getting in to Varese?
