Reference Recordings proudly presents Holstís best-known and beloved works in an outstanding interpretation from Michael Stern and the Kansas City Symphony. This hybrid SACD release was recorded in the beautiful and acoustically acclaimed Helzberg Hall, Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. It was produced by David Frost, six-time winner of the Classical Producer of the Year Grammy award. It was recorded by RRís engineering team, comprised of Grammy-winning engineer and Technical Director Keith O. Johnson, and multi-Grammy-nominated engineer Sean Martin.

The Kansas City Symphony has a vision to transform hearts, minds and its community through the power of symphonic music. Founded in 1982, the Symphony has established itself as a major force in the cultural life of the community. Praised for performances of uncompromising standard, the orchestra is the largest in the region and holds a national reputation under the artistic leadership of Music Director Michael Stern.

This is the seventh in Reference Recordingsí series with Kansas City Symphony. Previous albums are Shakespeareís Tempest, the Grammy Award-winning Brittenís Orchestra, an Elgar/Vaughan Williams project, Miraculous Metamorphoses, an all-Saint-SaŽns CD featuring the magnificent Organ Symphony, and the music of contemporary American composer Adam Schoenberg (nominated for two Grammy Awards). Two additional projects, featuring one-movement symphonies by Barber, Scriabin and Sibelius; and a live recording of works of Johannes Brahms, have been recorded and slated for future release.
