Epics - Cincinnati Pops Orchestra/Erich Kunzel          (1 of 1 found this review helpful)
  Review by sledge19 November 21, 2004

Yes, I have to agree, newer projects of the CPO are lacking sometimes tempo and effort. On the other hand, I think that "EPICS" is one of the better ones recently issued. One of my favorites is "Gladiator". The original movie soundtrack is typical Zimmer - the music is completely and ... more

  Review by thepilot November 20, 2004

This is the only "Concerto for Orchestra" you'll ever need. Performance and sound is fabulous, and the SACD reissue sounds like it was made yesterday. WOW is the only word that describes the way Reiner conducts Bartok and the way RCA engineers recorded the Chicago SO!
