 Fabulous July 29, 2013 By Huey P. (Dallas, TX) See All My Reviews "Another breathtaking performance of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and Manfred Hoheck. I have never heard a finer Ein Heldenleben than this recording. The sound is outstanding. I am giving this recording less than 5 stars because audience applause is included at the end of the recording which considerably deminishes my appreciation of this disc. I urge the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra to omit audience applause on future recordings." Report Abuse
