Bizet: Symphony in C Major, Mendelssohn: A Midsummer's Night Dream Incidental Music, Smetana: The Moldau (Essential Classics). The Cleveland Orchestra under George Szell was renowned for its chamber orchestra like ensemble and precision and this, combined with such an ebullient performance, carries the day. I can't recall a better recording of the piece and I've been listening and collecting for over fifty years.
