The Arts Desk Reviews Miraculous Metamorphoses

The Arts Desk's Graham Rickson has a new rave for Kansas City Symphony's Miraculous Metamorphoses recording:

“If you're not familiar with the [Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber] piece, start here. … Michael Stern's Kansas City Symphony performance shows what can be achieved when a band on inspired form makes the effort to play what's actually written. …It sparkles, abounding in oft-hidden detail. … And I've never enjoyed the chirping winds which bounce over the March's horn quartet so much. Rich, natural-sounding recording too – the expansive moments never suffering from congestion. … Anthologies of sparky 20th-century music are rarely this enjoyable…” —Graham Rickson, The Arts Desk
