Rad Bennett Listens to Minnesota Orchestra's Strauss

Audiophile critic Rad Bennett has a new review of an HDtracks download of our Minnesota Orchestra recording of Strauss' Ein Heldenleben with Eiji Oue:

“… the orchestra covered itself in glory. Lush, detailed, exciting, and heroic are all words that come to mind to describe this performance. The download also included a suite of interludes from the opera Die Frau Ohne Schatten, which is awesome, dramatic, and romantic music we should hear more often! … Overall, my listening adventure…proved one thing to me, the Minnesota Orchestra is a national treasure. East coast snobs should listen to it more often and admit that it has earned its place in the ‘top five.’” —Rad Bennett

New Minnesota Orchestra LP

Copland: Third Symphony; Fanfare for the Common Man

Minnesota Orchestra/Eiji Oue

200 gram 33 1/3rpm LP in deluxe gatefold jacket

“…There has never been a stereo recording of Copland's Third that approaches the concert-hall experience. Until now. This recording clearly has great value as a musical experience, but it also sets a new standard as a sonic showcase for a nearly impossible-to-record work.” —Arthur B. Lintgen, THE ABSOLUTE SOUND

“This is the best interpretation of the Copland Third in a generation, and the sound is Keith Johnson at his considerable best. That is to say, jaw-dropping and a revelation.” —Harry Pearson, THE ABSOLUTE SOUND (Also listed in HP's Super CD List, Top 10)
