Notes and Editorial Reviews

Reiner and Chicago capture the passion and nobility of this popular symphony and make it seem newly-minted. In this new DSD remastering, the strings soar, the brasses blaze with brilliance, and the famous lyrical English horn solo ("Goin' Home") will linger long in memory.

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.
