"He was a master of orchestration, both in his use of particular instruments and in his creation of ensembles. Rich sonic palettes are often created using spare means. His meticulous craftsmanship and his musical sensibility have assured his position as a 20th-century Romantic classicist." Mary Wallace Davidson in Grove Music Online.

Krasnapolsky, an assistant conductor of the New York Philharmonic under Leonard Bernstein, also conducted a number of regional orchestras including the Omaho and Des Moines symphonies. Item #30610
