The six tracks offered here have all been chosen because they received the highest rating at ClassicsToday for their combination of interpretive and sonic excellence. That makes them a particularly fine introduction to HD Tracks’ high-definition digital download service, as well as a wonderful way to sample some of the best new recordings of Romantic and early 20th century orchestral music. The included liner notes highlight some of the more noteworthy sonic and interpretive aspects of each track. We hope that you find listening as rewarding and enjoyable as we did when considering these discs for review.
