The Thirion recording one can hear on YouTube.  I found the work pretty unmemorable (to be kind).

My recollection is that the YT version is a terrible old radio recording, unless things have changed. I found it a very fine work.

(edit) Oh dear, I see this CD is the same old 1959 radio broadcast. What a disappointment. This work deserves a new performance.

Are you suggesting you've heard an alternative performance, - or that despite the "terrible old radio recording" you find it a very fine work nonetheless?

I found the musicweb review rather positive http://www.musicweb-international.com/classrev/2020/Jun/Thirion_sy2_FR1741.htm
As for the sound picture it says 'As with most radio broadcasts of this vintage, a certain pallor envelopes the sound, with some loss of detail on occasion.' IMHO that's asomewhat different then 'terrible sounding'. (Haven't bought the CD myself, yet.)

Have you listened to the (Thirion) performance on YouTube?

I refuse to listen to music on YouTube. The content is illegally placed without permission by musicians and the like.

Some. perhaps.  OTOH, certain distributors (Naxos, for example) post huge numbers of recordings on YouTube themselves.

And will put a strike against you if they have a problem with you violating copyright. Many of those same distributors and artists can make revenue from the ads on videos posted from their source material as long as the creator doesn't monetize.
