Classical Music Sentinel is excited about the new partnership with the Pittsburgh Symphony!
“As if to emulate the protagonist portrayed in Don Juan, Op. 20, conductor Manfred Honeck delivers the opening pages of this orchestral masterpiece with a swift, impulsive, impetuous and almost arrogant demeanor, true and relevant to the character. The members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra respond with aplomb and sparkle… Whereas the opening minute impresses by its bravura, the final closing minute, by its dead quiet, will give you the shivers…This Reference Recordings release is presented in HDCH, SACD 5.1 Surround, SACD Stereo and CD Stereo, and is the first in a series of “Pittsburgh Live!” recordings. Definitely a series off to a great start and one to follow.” —Jean-Yves Duperron, Classical Music Sentinel
