Notes and Editorial Reviews


Once in a while, you hear a piece of classical music that captures you completely; you drop everything, clear your head, and immerse yourself in the magnificent power of the symphonic orchestra. This disc contains some of our favorite orchestral repertoire - all exceptional performances recorded in spectacular sound. There are some familiar "spectaculars" as well as lesser known showpieces that we think deserve attention. Great music deserves to be played often and heard by many, so please enjoy often and with others!
