Notes and Editorial Reviews

Selections recorded in Music Hall, Cincinnati, Ohio and in Masonic Auditorium, Cleveland, Ohio.
This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.
Tchaikovsky's infamous "1812 Overture" has gotten a modern face-lift. Eric Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra have a new rendition of the celebratory classic, one that includes choral work from the Kiev Symphony Chorus, along with some of the most impressive cannons and bells heard to date. Over 20 years ago, this adventurous conductor/ensemble pairing inaugurated the legendary Telarc label with their 1978 debut version of the battle hymn. Creating a more dramatic picture, the ensemble has now produced a performance to surpass their landmark
Read more interpretation, using the new DSD (direct stream digital) recording process. This enables a finely tuned, three-dimensional listening experience. Ready to put your speakers to the test, it gives the listener the "best seat in the house" by capturing the vibrant ambience of Cincinnati's world-famous Music Hall with precise detail.
Other prominent works included are "March Slave," "Capriccio Italien," and the "Festival Coronation March." All are performed with depth and power, all the while stirring with grandiose lyricism. Rising to the occasion, Kunzel proves that with the aid of new recording technologies and a world-class orchestra, some of the most striking and poetic renditions of the standard repertoire are yet to come.
