Customers who bought this item also bought
The latest release from the Seattle Symphony's Grammy-nominated label is a provocative coupling of two great works by European composers reflecting their response to the vibrant culture of the New World. Varèse's Amériques, written only 30 years after Dvorák's beloved New World Symphony, is a pivotal masterpiece that changed the course of music forever. In live performances of electrifying energy and recorded in stunning sound, this is a mind-bending combination of masterpieces that is not to be missed.
" This recording bursts with terrific playing - listen to that tremendous brass! Those urgent, razor-sharp strings! And it serves as proof of the Seattle Symphony's triumphant claim, under the leadership of Ludovic Morlot, as one of the truly great American orchestras. Beautifully engineered, too."
--Anastasia Tsioulcas, NPR, June 2015
