This Mercury title featuring Hanson Symphony No. 2 "Romantic" and the Lament For Beowulf, conducted by Hanson himself, is considered by many as one of the best-sounding releases from Mercury's Rochester, NY venue. The early stereo Mercury signature sound is fantastic, making it possibly the definitive version of the symphony. You can trust in the composer's expertise as he conducts this masterpiece with precision.
