Great Sounding Classical Title from EMI!

180g Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original EMI Stereo Analogue Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios!

Sir Colin Davis conducts the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for this audiophile recording of Overtures by Rossini.

This is one of Sir Colin Davis’s early recordings before his signed to Philips, made when he was establishing his name as a conductor and was Musical Director at Sadler’s Wells Opera Company in London, having come to their notice by conducting successful performances of Don Giovanni at the Royal Festival Hall standing in for Klemperer when he fell ill and The Magic Flute at Glyndebourne standing in for Beecham when he was taken ill. Davis went on to be chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra in 1967 and in 1971 succeeded Sir Georg Solti as Music Director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. He has since held posts with many international orchestras, including a ten year stint as chief conductor of the LSO in 1995. His repertoire is broad but he particularly associated with the music of Berlioz, Mozart and Sibelius.

Recorded on April 22, June 18 and October 23, 1961 at No. 1 Studio, Abbey Road, London. Produced by the legendary Peter Andry and engineered by Edward Huntley.

In the original August 1962 review of the stereo release W. A. Chislett of the GRAMOPHONE wrote:
"...Old war horses as they may be Mr. Davis approaches them as new works with splendid effect...There is brilliance and bite too where called for and some truly Rossinian crescendos. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra gives of its very best, particularly in the many beautifully shaped solos for the woodwind and there is a magnificent attack from the brass section. The recording engineers are also on their best behaviour. The range of dynamics is very wide, but even with the wick turned well up the fortissimi are rich and round. But above all else this fine record is distinguished for the freshness of approach displayed by the conductor... the...recording...is first-class on both sides."

Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS82 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional ‘advance’ playback head, making the cut a totally analogue process.
