PITTSBURGH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Strauss: Alpine Symphony Op. 64
Marek Janowski
PentaTone Classics
Hybrid SACD
2009

“PentaTone , aided by contributors from the Soundmirror recording team, has here displaced the classic recording by Zubin Mehta and the L.A. Philharmonic (London/Decca). And the newer one by André Previn and the Vienna Philharmonic (Telarc) as the best-sounding Alpensinfonie, and Janowski and the Pittsburghers give a performance competitive with the historic one by Rudolf Kempke and the Dresden Staatskapelle (EMI).”
