One of the undisputed finest recordings in the history of classical music now sounds better than ever! Simply put, The Power Of The Orchestra will blow you away! Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Kevin Gray!

A recording this bold, this bombastic with totally jaw-dropping dynamics just begged to be released on SACD. Unbelievable!

Recorded at Kingsway Hall and engineered by Kenneth Wilkinson, this record couples Moussorgsky's Pictures At An Exhibition with Night On Bare Mountain. It has long been considered among the greatest sounding records ever made. Perhaps most stunning about Power of the Orchestra are the effortless dynamics, which have been reviewed and raved about ever since the first RCA shaded dog. From the teeny, tiny, itsy, bitsy gentle plucks of strings to the WHAM!! CRASH!! SLAM!! of a full orchestra without a bit of notice. It's heart-stopping, jump-out-of-your-seat-type dynamics. The Power of the Orchestra - a more appropriate title there never was. But to hear it now...! This thing's got all the weight of an anchor but at the same time the clarity and airiness and sparkle of a feather. Nuance, a holographic soundstage, emotion to spare - this one's got it all. A true reference. Power, indeed.
