The recording is another Bert Whyte sonic triumph on 35MM film. In addition to the concerto, Whyte and team recorded Sibelius' last tone poem, Tapiola, referred to by many as a consummate masterpiece written with extraordinary simplicity and directness. The LP was cut 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 LP's are pressed on Classic's 200g Super Vinyl Profile making it possible to get every nuance out of the non-distorted grooves that make SVP sound superior to all other records on the market today. Authentic tip on construction jackets with all original artwork and labels add to this must have deluxe LP edition as part of the Classic Everest 35MM LP Series.
