Strauss, R:

Don Juan, Op. 20

Tod und Verklärung, Op. 24

Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche, Op. 28


This new release and the upcoming series are recorded and mastered by the team at Soundmirror, whose outstanding orchestral, solo, opera, and chamber recordings have received over 70 GRAMMY nominations and awards.

“Honeck's interpretations have huge personality, and mostly in the right way. He's not averse to Stokowski-style touchings-up if they help the drama...Honeck likes to underline something pathological about his hero's pranks... The orchestra plays passionately and luminously, with the brass thrusting when they need to be.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2014 *****

“the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra play these three masterly symphonic poems with virtuosity, great feeling and a glorious patina of string tone...But what makes these performances so outstanding are Manfred Honeck's interpretations, which vividly bring out the music's emotional and pictorial detail.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2014

“In recent years this orchestra has grown in stature and with this release in the Pittsburgh Live! series their collaboration has once again borne luscious fruit.” MusicWeb International, 27th January 2014
