Classical Candor Reviews Strauss

Classical Candor (which recently named our Elgar/Vaughan Williams recording a 2013 favorite) has a new review for the Pittsburgh Symphony's Strauss recording:

“…what Maestro Honeck and his team offer are vigorous performances and excellent, live, hybrid multichannel SACD sound. … With Honeck it's all about the excitement. … Death and Transfiguration, Op. 24 … [is] both dreadful and peaceful, ominous and tranquil, dramatic and serene, at least in Honeck's hands, and he builds a commendably steady momentum as the work unfolds. The conclusion is as touching as any I've heard … while all three pieces on the disc conclude with the hero's death, it is in Honeck's handling of Till Eulenspiegel that we see most clearly the striking significance of that end … I found splendid definition, a good bass and treble extension, strong transient impact, and a spacious stereo spread.” — John J. Puccio, Classical Candor
