Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Minnesota Orchestra discs are so dazzling that I listened to these familiar pieces as if for the first time. The orchestra has a ferocious technique and the musical unity of a first-rate string quartet. The string sections command a vast palette of tonal colors; the brass have as rich and unified sound as a great pipe organ;... The combination of exquisite phrasing, perfect ensemble, and better-than-live recording quality makes these performances virtually indispensable." — Paul Festa, Salon "The Minnesota Orchestra discs are so dazzling that I listened to these familiar pieces as if for the first time.
