Reference Recordings FR-707
Strauss: Don Juan, Op 20 (18:33)
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra / Manfred Honeck
For more than 116 years, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra has been known for its artistic excellence. The PSO has a rich history of the world’s finest conductors and musicians. This tradition was furthered in fall 2008, when Austrian conductor Manfred Honeck became Music Director. The orchestra’s new release is planned as the first in a series of multi-channel hybrid SACD recordings from Reference Recordings. It features three tone poems by Richard Strauss: Don Juan, Death and Transfiguration and Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks.
