 Great performances of fine music October 17, 2015 By Christopher D. (Kokomo, IN) See All My Reviews "Grofe is an underrated composer. He's as good as Respighi - colorful, fun, highly accomplished. And Bernstein goes to town here with the Grand Canyon Suite, an excellent, vivid, colorful performance. Likewise Kostalanetz with the less-common Mississippi Suite, with the same top-notch NY Phil. The sound comes up fresh as a daisy." Report Abuse
