KHACHATURIAN: Symphony 3 for Orchestra, Organ and 15 Trumpets
RIMSKY-KORSAKOFF: Russian Easter Overture
MENDELSSOHN: A Midsummers Night’s Dream - Incidental Music*
              Overture, Scherzo, Nocturne and Wedding March

Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Leopold Stokowski, Conductor / Jean Martinon, Conductor*
T
Stokowski has achieved here a sonic blockbuster with the 3rd Symphony of Khachaturian and the familiar Russian Easter Overture of Rimsky-Korsakoff.  Worry not, there is no use of a baritone solo as was the case in an earlier Stokowski recording of this familiar overture, all with incredible brass and low end effects. The Martinon Mendelssohn is a rare recording and demos wonderful playing especially from the CSO brass.Truly one of the best recording of this music ever.

The Leslie Jones Haydn Symphonies Series


OFFENBACH: Gaîté Pasisienne (1947 Recording)
CHOPIN: Les Sylphides
Boston Pops Orchestra, Arthur Fiedler, Conductor

Many of us first listened to "Gaîté Parisienne" by way of this this first Boston Pops / Fiedler recording of it. It is, of course not the sonic blockbuster recorded remake of 1954 but is better played overall with more punch and purpose and is remastered on CD with much improved sound.  The Chopin, recorded in 1946 is the Peter Bodge and Leroy Anderson arrangement. This comes highly recommended with much nostalgia.

BEETHOVEN: Symphony Nº 3 in E Flat Major, Op. 55, "Eroica"
Sir John Barbirolli, Conductor  /  BBC Symphony Orchestra

This exceptional recording displays this music with thoughtful dedication to the inner, overlooked by the usual podium "mee-tooism" - often failed attempts - to adhere to Beethoven's speed demon tempo markings. Barbirolli takes his time for the sake of clarity.  A Barbirolli must have CD carefully transferred form  from a rare, unopened till now, Angel stereo reel tape.

TCHAIKOVSKY: Manfred Symphony  
Gennadi Rozhdestvensky
, Conductor / Moscow Radio Large Symphony Orchestra

When we released the Borodin and Rachmaninoff CD listed below, requests came in for us to find the Rozhdestvensky, Tchaikovsky Manfred.  A search came up with one Melodya LP copy available in Romania!  It arrived soon enough and the LP is in near mint condition.  The recording itself has dynamics range problems along with hum. These problems are now gone and the transfer is spectacular to complement this wonderful, ultra-Russian performance.  The conductor, as it states on the back of the record jacket, plays the pipe organ at the end.  The spacious acoustics are perfectly captured too.

BRAHMS: Symphony 4 in E  Minor, Op. 98
J. C.  BACH: Symphony Nº 2 in B Flat Major, Op. 18; Symphony Nº 4 in D Major, Op. 18

Concertgebouw Orchestra, Amsterdam / Eduard Van Beinum
   
These three works conducted by Eduard van Beinum are at the very top of the list and have been rather neglected since they appeared in this country on Epic LPs during the late 1950's. The Brahms is filled with the old and now banished Concertgebouw Orchestra sonic signature and the J.C. Bach Symphonies are perfect gems under Van Beinum's hand.  The mp3 excerpts will also reveal the perfect phrasing throughout and the wonderful oboe solo work of Haakon Stotijn, first oboe in the COA back then.  The sound is first rate too. This is another "must have" Van Beinum CD.

CHOPIN: Les Sylphides - Ballet (orchestration by Roy Douglas)
DELIBES: La Source - Ballet Selections 
 
Peter Maag. Conductor / Paris Conservatoire Orchestra

This release features superb performances of music as played by the ultra French sounding Paris Conservatoire Orchestra in spectacular "Decca Tree" sound with plenty of solid bottom end and pristine highs along with much depth and definition within the stereo image.  The Chopin is very familiar but here, there is that " listening to it for the first time" effect, holding one's attention from start to finish.  The Léo Delibes ballet is typical of the composer which of brought forth with incredible élan by this wonderful orchestra under Peter Maag's direction.   Don't let this one pass you by.                                                                    High Quality MP3  sample here

Searching through the Haydn House 45 rpm collection a second time has brought us this fine array of Boston Pops performances under the special care of Arthur Fiedler. All has been carefully transferred to the digital medium including restoration of the overall sound of each disc. Most were recorded in the late 1940's and early 1950's  which means that Fiedler was conducting Serge Koussevitzky's Boston Symphony musicians less the first desk players.  If you have the first volume (on page 16), the you must have this one. Highly recommended!     High Quality

Eugene Ormandy.
Conductor / Philadelphia Orchestra

This elusive Istomin / Ormandy recording has been taken by the horns and restored from top to bottom with hum removed and near sub sonic podium foot stomps and channel balances adjusted and lower mid bass improved to 21st century sonic standards. The result is thrilling, giving a new life to this wonderful performance. 
Here it is once again. The patched together Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 7!  It's a mid 1950's creation from fragments left by the composer which were used in such works as the 3rd.

 FRANCK: Symphony in D Minor
WAGNER: Ride of the Valkyries, Lohengrin Preludes 1 & 3, 
Die Meistersinger Prelude to Act I, Tannhäuser Overture
One of the most powerful Franck D Minor's ever recorded. Incredible low brass and power giving a sense that this is one Franck own organ works. The Wagner boasts a similar approach from Paray in straightforward renditions of the more popular Wagner works. These are the early mono recordings and are better than any of the stereo remakes which came later. All is re-mastered from our previous CD issues in our catalog.     High Quality MP3 sample here

Hermann Scherchen, Conductor / Vienna Symphony Prchestra
LISZT: Les Préludes 
Paul Paray Conductor / Detroit Symphony

The elusive but very superior Hermann Scherchen, Vienna Symphony recording of the "Eroica" at the outset of this CD casts aside his later stereo recording with the Vienna State Opera Orchestra. It is muscular with sharp attacks and good brass and plenty of dynamic range for this early 1950's recording. To top off the Scherchen, the Paray Liszt Les Préludes which is quite similar in approach and also with good solid brass throughout. This is a must have CD for all.    High Quality MP3 sample here
