This set of DVDs is an outgrowth of the PBS/WNET series of concerts performed by a made-for-TV orchestra composed of the best players drawn from 22 states—from orchestras in New York, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle and more. The finest players were chosen to make up this one-of-a-kind symphony orchestra.

The performances are uniformly excellent. The musicianship on display is always good, at times astonishing.

…every work here is performed with precision and just electrified energy.

All the discs are worth owning for the music alone. © 2014 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
