Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This particular recorded performance [of Symphonia Domestica] quickly acquired the status of a classic, and its present reappearance on CD confirms Reiner as an outstanding Strauss interpreter. He obtains the utmost clarity from the huge orchestra's complex textures, with carefully considered balance throughout, meticulous observance of all the composer's rhythmic and dynamic nuances, and beautifully shaped phrasing; and though by the best modern standards the string sound is a trifle diffuse, the brilliance of the playing is obvious, and the big climaxes are quite thrilling."

-- Gramophone [12/1990]
