Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the February 2012 Issue of Stereophile!

Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Analog Master Tapes & Pressed at RTI! Numbered Deluxe Laminated Gatefold Jackets! Only 2500 Numbered Limited Edition Copies Worldwide!

The marvelous Swiss conductor Peter Maag leads the London Symphony Orchestra performing Mendelssohn's "Scotch" or "Scottish" Symphony, recorded in 1960. A gloriously warmhearted and energetic performance, Maag's interpretation has set the recorded standard for this work! The recording captures wonderful chemistry between Peter Maag and the London Symphony Orchestra. It's Mendelssohn performance at its best, which is saying a lot!

"Peter Maag conducts a delightfully fresh "Scottish" Symphony, keeping tempos moderately brisk, textures lean, and phrasing intuitive - that is, everything flows easily and logically. ...Decca's 1960 recording of the symphony is full and clear with plenty of depth" - Victor Carr, classicstoday.com

"The results are a dazzling example of what vinyl still has to offer, if prepared with care that mass-produced records do not receive. The sound defines vividness, with an undistorted dynamic range and pin-point accuracy of the orchestral instruments’ locations. Long considered one of the best recordings (among many) turned out by London (actually British Decca), this pair of 45rpm discs was an ear opener. Exciting and involving, ORG has produced a must-have for anyone who possesses audiophile level equipment." - Zan Furtwangler, 4 Stars!!, www.audaud.com, January 2012
