Eiji Oue and the Minnesota Orchestra handle this music with impressive conviction and precision of spirit. They evoke a thoroughly convincing sense of the majesty and vastness of the 'Symphonic Etudes', the idiosyncratic drama and beauty of 'Études Tableaux', and the romantic longing of 'Vocalise'.

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.

'No one can approach Reference Recordings' unparalleled sound in this music. The sweet liquid presence of the high end, especially the critical massed strings, approaches perfection when it blends with RR's characteristic ambient soundstage, fine inner detail and bass impact.' Arthur B. Lintgen, TAS

'Even by the exalted standards one has come to expect from Reference Recordings, this is something extraordinary. . . This is the kind of recording that gives one renewed faith in the possibility of reproducing the power and beauty of an orchestra in a home environment, the kind of thing that makes audio worthwhile. Not to be missed.' Robert E. Greene, TAS

'Once again, Keith Johnson has raised the bar of excellence in the recording of a symphony orchestra. . . It's a fabulous recording and a super performance' Anthony Kershaw, Audiophilia.com

'Keith Johnson's HDCD recording captures the sound of Orchestra Hall with stunning impact. Like the best EMI recordings of the 1960s, the musical and technical qualities of this release are linked inextricably to its success. Quite a remarkable achievement.' Gramophone

'The playing by the Minnesota Orchestra is simply stupendous: tremendously unified ensemble, immaculate balances that let you hear all the important lines, and a palpable sense of enjoyment from the players (those trumpet players rule!).' Victor Carr, Jr., ClassicsToday.com
