Editor's Choice

“…the Pittsburgh Symphony - increasingly one of the nations finest - could easily be mistaken for a top German orchestra, like Leipzig or Dresden, in this music. The refulgence of the playing is a constant source of pleasure and any conductor who is as mindful of Brahm's ingenuity, invention and sheer vision as Janowski demands to be heard. The Hungarian Dances... are earthy and sinewy with plenty of surge factor in the lower strings and the requisite cheekiness in the phrasing exemplified by those traditionally tantalising hesitations and stompling downbeats.”

Gramophone magazine – March 2009

“Carlo Ponti…brings out the Russian-ness of Mussorgsky's inspiration with each of the pictures sharply characterised… The wind solos are especially impressive, as is the horn descant in the "Great Gate of Kiev". In short, an excellent version of a much-recorded showpiece. Night on the Bare Mountain comes in the highly unauthentic but undeniably effective Rimsky version, brilliantly played here with powerful bite.”
