Cut From Original 2-Track Session Tapes!
RCA Living Stereo the gold standard for top quality orchestral performance and sound!
One of the most sought-after Living Stereos and deservedly so, especially for the "Song of the Nightingale" which is one of Mohr and Layton's finest efforts. The sound is truly wonderful on the Stravinsky too. The original 2-track session tapes were used in mastering for LPs and SACDs.
"...I'd have to say that the usual stumbling blocks have been sidestepped. Great care has been taken to do the right things, starting with the way the decision to remaster these RCAs was made." - Jonathan Valin, theabsolutesound.com, June 11, 2013
