Just re-discovered this old rip and found that I never posted it here. One of the best sounding classical albums I’ve ever heard.
The compact disc was a 1997 Grammy nominee for “Best Engineered, Classical.”
“There is no finer orchestral playing among American orchestras…Bravissimos are due to all concerned…a triumph of artistry, both musical and technical.” – Heuwell Tircuit, InTune magazine
The world-renowned Minnesota Orchestra in its first recordings with its dynamic music director! Eiji Oue, a protege of Seiji Ozawa and Leonard Bernstein, has set the entire Twin Cities area on fire with his exciting and masterful interpretations.
