Reference Recordings proudly presents Holst's best known and beloved works in an outstanding interpretation from Michael Stern and the Kansas City Symphony. This Hybrid SACD release was recorded in the beautiful and acoustically acclaimed Helzberg Hall, Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in downown Kansas City, Mo.. It was produced by David Frost, six-time winner of the Classical Producer of the Year Grammy Award. It was recorded by RR's engineering team, comprised of Grammy-winning engineer and Technical Director Keith O. Johnson, and multi-Grammy-nominated engineer Sean Martin.

The Kansas City Symphony has a vision to transform hearts, minds and its community through the power of symphonic music.
