Description
Selected by SoundStage!.com as one of the 'Best Recordings of 2001'.  Chosen by THREE reviewers of The Absolute Sound magazine as one of the best releases of 2001. 

Sergei Rachmaninoff was one of the most beloved composers of the twentieth century. His music is redolent of his Russian homeland, and it sings long, lush melodies that define the term 'romantic.' Everyone who knows and loves his piano concertos will enjoy these lyrical and dynamic works for orchestra. The 'Symphonic Dances' in recent years have become one of Rachmaninoff’s most-performed scores. The five 'Ètudes-Tableaux' were orchestrated by Ottorino Respighi from the brilliant originals for piano. 'Vocalise' is one of the great classical melodies, and is hummable by everyone. Initial response from renowned reviewers is amazingly positive. Two have said this is the finest orchestral recording Reference Recordings has ever made! 

The world-renowned Minnesota Orchestra in the first recordings with its dynamic new music director. Eiji Oue (A.G. OH-way), a former protege of Leonard Bernstein and Seiji Ozawa, has turned the entire Twin Cities area on its head with his exciting and masterful interpretations.
