Notes & Reviews:

"These SACD multichannel remasterings sound amazingly fine and true to life, so much so that the standard stereo issues don't even begin to compare... The real treat here, though, is the excellent Pictures at an Exhibition, which is beautifully played and quite spectacularly recorded. Waart opts for generally swift tempos, not least in "The Great Gate of Kiev" where the closing pages bring a truly physical thrill as he presses forward in the final statement of the resplendent principal theme. Every detail of Ravel's marvelous orchestration registers with unobtrusive clarity, along with richly resonant bass and excellent orchestral positioning... On both musical and sonic grounds, this is one of the finest productions that Pentatone has released thus far." -Classics Today (9/9)
