CD - Miraculous Metamorphoses
“The Symphonic Metamorphosisfeatures some outstanding playing right from the start. The witty interplay between the winds and strings is exceptional throughout. The warmly assertive brass section also deserves special mention. … The Prokofiev is also pretty wonderful. The Kansas City players really dig in to their parts, with plenty of grunts and snarls along the way. … This is great music taken seriously. … The Bartók easily outclasses many a version. It's a swift, no-nonsense approach that serves as an ideal showcase for the terrific orchestral players on display.… Recorded at the new Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, this new disc deserves a home in the library of anyone who loves 20th Century music.” —Brian Wigman, Classical Net
