About

The 2015 release on compact disc garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Classical Engineering. We now present this recording in brilliant SACD Surround Sound. Already widely praised for outstanding perfomances and sonics, now Surround Sound listeners will hear the all-encompassing 3-D realism and power of the Kansas City Symphony and soloists Jan Kraybill (organ), Noah Geller (violin) and Mark Gibbs (cello).

Conductor Michael Stern’s interpretations of these great works were captured by the team of Grammy award winners Keith O. Johnson (engineer, surround mastering) and David Frost (producer). Others on the team include Sean Martin (engineer) and Graemme Brown (SACD authoring).

The Kansas City Symphony has released four previous titles with Reference Recordings to great acclaim. Two additional projects have been recorded, including music of contemporary American composer Adam Schoenberg (release planned for September 2016), and music of Gustav Holst: The Planets and ballet music from The Perfect Fool. The Symphony has been led by Music Director Michael Stern since 2005. Under his leadership it has experienced impressive artistic growth, garnering new national and international acclaim.

For 40 years, Reference Recordings has been one of the most innovative and respected independent labels in the music business. Reference Recordings releases have been highly praised for their dedication to high quality sound in the service of great music. Founder Tam Henderson (1998 Grammy nominee for Producer of the Year), was joined in 1978 by engineer Keith O. Johnson. Some 140 projects later, RR is still recording what many consider to be the finest-sounding classical, jazz and blues discs in the world.
