The Goossen's / London Symphony recordings from 1959 feature Joseph Fuchs as the soloist on these Bert Whyte recordings at Walthamstom Assembly Hall in London - the same hall used extensively by the Decca and Kenneth Wilkinson. The performance is electrifying and wonderfully complemented by the 35mm sound which has a textural richness that is more realistic than any other tape format.
The HDAD PLUS which is a two disc set consisting of a two sided DVD-10 disc containing DVD Audio and DVD Video formats PLUS a bonus CD from a separate 16 bit / 44.1 kHz two channel capture done simultaneously for the CD format to avoid non-integer down sampling and hence provide for maximum quality for the CD all transferred directly from the 35mm magnetic film using a vintage Westrex 1551 tape machine, with specially built playback electronics that are vastly superior to any others used on these machines to playback the original 35mm tapes. The Len Horowitz / History of Recorded Sound specially modified 1551, fitted with brand new playback heads matched to the revolutionary playback electronics was stationed at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood. With Len Horowitz running the playback machine and Bernie Grundman mastering from the three track 35mm tapes, Classic Records has been able to capture the legendary sound and performances directly from the 35mm magnetic film through an "ALL TUBE" tape playback system and at 24 bit resolution and 192 kHz sampling rate for use in both the two and three channel presentations included on both the DVD Audio and DVD Video sides of the two sided DVD-10. The level of detail and dynamics on these discs will stretch all systems to their limits - be careful as weak systems could collapse under the strain!
