PITTSBURGH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
This release has been reissued in many forms over the years. This is sourced
from the first Issue on Vinyl back in 1956.
A Canadian MONO 180g pressing. It's got a bit of surface noise even though
it is an Excellent grade copy. I did not attempt to remove it as it would
effect the very fragile Bell sounds and high end instruments that are supposed to
emulate the Glass Harmonica, and other exotic instruments featured on this
recording. This has such beautiful dynamics and is a Long player
maxing out the recording duration of an LP but with grace.
I have heard other saying this is a slightly noisy pressing but the music contained
overshadows that with colors and feeling. It's an exacting performance
yet is not robotic. There was talk of this being too fast for some, but I don't find that
qualifies. The tempo is still within the realm that makes this pace very enjoyable
and even rushes the blood at times.
Repeated listens will reveal much beauty in this recording.
This is our first offering in the Classical recording realm. We like the cover
of the 1st issue alot too, very cool illustration.
