RCA Living Stereo classical LPs - the gold standard for top quality orchestral performance and sound!
Since its original release on LP in the mid-1950s, Fritz Reiner's rendition of the Concerto for Orchestra has stood as the standard against which all other recordings of the work are measured. Reiner's superb control of his orchestra and of Bartok's rhythms and textures is still unsurpassed, even by dozens of subsequent conductors in the digital age. Likewise, the Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta shows just what an incredible ensemble the Chicago Symphony was under Reiner's direction. The original 2-track session tapes were used in mastering this LP in the Analogue Productions reissue series. Reiner delivers definitive interpretations that set a standard that remains unsurpassed.
