Selected by SoundStage!.com as one of the "Best Recordings of 2001"

Chosen by three reviewers of The Absolute Sound magazine as one of the best releases of 2001

Conductor: Eiji Oue, Minnesota Orchestra

Sergei Rachmaninoff was one of the most beloved composers of the twentieth century. His music is redolent of his Russian homeland, and it sings long, lush melodies that define the term "romantic." Everyone who knows and loves his piano concertos will enjoy these lyrical and dynamic works for orchestra. The "Symphonic Dances" in recent years have become one of Rachmaninoff's most-performed scores.  "Vocalise" is one of the great classical melodies, and is hummable by everyone. Initial response from renowned reviewers is amazingly positive. Two have said this is the finest orchestral recording Reference Recordings has ever made!

Is it live or digital?

It is a very, very good recording. However, I suspect that it is not an analog recording. It sounds a bit "digital". Also, all analog recordings issued by RR in the past made a point to print on the cover a statement saying that it was a pure analog recording. Besides, there was a list of the equipment used to record it, I didn't see one.
