Here’s the claim from the Vänskä-BIS teams:
No other American orchestra comes close to equaling the Minnesota Orchestra’s achievement as a recording powerhouse over the past quarter-century. Most orchestras in the U.S. are not recording at all or release only occasional live recordings, usually on in-house labels with zero support from major record companies.
Anyone care to dispute that?
CORRECTION: By our reckoning, the Minnesota Orchestra has made 16 discs with Vanska.
Someone must have made more.
