Notes & Reviews:

This magnificent new symphonic recording with the Kansas City Symphony contains classic modern masterpieces by Hindemith, Prokofiev, and Bartok. It is also the premiere recording made in Helzberg Hall, in the new Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, MO. Conductor Michael Stern's interpretations of these great works have been captured in brilliant HDCD sound by GrammyR-winning engineer Keith O. Johnson. Producer David Frost has also won Grammy AwardsR - in 2005, 2009, and 2011 - for Classical Producer of the Year. He has produced a large roster of stars and GrammyR-winning titles, and Reference Recordings is most honored to work with him again on this project.

Classical CD Choice
Stern characterizes each variation with great skill ... the eloquent cello playing in Variation XII and the superb room-shaking organ in the Finale makes this a performance and recording to relish.
