The Kansas City Star’s Patrick Neas published his list of “Classical gems sure to bring joy to the holiday season” and The Kansas City Symphony and Michael Stern’s Holst: The Planets; The Perfect Fool is at the top of his gift list!
“The performance is as good as any you’re likely to hear, but this recording is a standout for the stunning sound captured by Keith O. ‘Professor’ Johnson, the legendary producer for Reference Recordings. Johnson now has considerable experience recording the Kansas City Symphony in Helzberg Hall, and ‘The Planets’ captures the hall’s pristine acoustics with breathtaking accuracy. If at all possible, listen to the super audio version in surround sound. It will make you forget about previous recordings…”—Patrick Neas, Kansas City Star
