"If you must, get the CD and then play it against this double 45 for your vinyl-doubting pals. Not sure if this was originally on analog tape or high resolution (176/24) digital but whatever was the source the sound is stunning." — Music = 11/11; Sound = 11/11 — Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com. Read the whole review here.

"Enjoy equally sensational sonics in a disc of daemonic influences, including Liszt's serious Mephisto Waltz and Dukas's comic masterpiece The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Oue is a born showman, and the orchestra is certainly willing – the dramatic ending to Franck's Le Chausseur Maudit packed full of virtuosity, while the brass is superb in Malcolm Arnold's Tam O'Shanter." -- David Denton, The Yorkshire Post  Performance 4 Stars, Recording 4 Stars

Ghosts, goblins, Merlins and demons run amok in this program of internal orchestral favorites! Eiji Oue and the Minnesota Orchestra light a fire under these colorful symphonic poems, captured in dazzling HDCD sound by by Grammy-winning engineer and audiophile legend Keith O. Johnson. An explosive orchestral tour de force!
