IMO the best recordings capture the original performance with the greatest fidelity which is maintained to the highest degree in the reproduction process.
A mono recording might well have greater fidelity than an inferior multi-channel recording, even though the ambience of the original venue might be perceived as very limited in comparison.
Audiophiles fretted over these same concerns when 'stereo' was first introduced.
