Notes & Reviews:

"This disc opens with a terrific performance of a piece that I never expected to be thrilled by again, the 1812 Overture. Litton has altered the work by having a chorus sing the three pieces that Tchaikovsky himself took from vocal pieces...Many listeners will be looking for this recording for the audiophile sound...The ambience is fully believable, the climaxes visceral and thrilling...This is one of the best-sounding orchestral recordings I know..." -Ullman, Fanfare
