Antal Dorati
Conductor
Royal Philharmonic

BEETHOVEN
   Symphony Nº 3 in B Flat major ("Eroica") 
   Symphony Nº 8  in F major 

   $12.00 per CD

The LP issues from which these recordings were taken, demos some of the most careless master tape to LP mastering ever produced.  Gone are the sonics one would expect from a usual Dorati Mercury recording.  Seldom does this occur, thank heavens. The basic sound in the grooves is clean but dull with shifts in amplitude and a lack of bass.  There is more hidden here than meets the ear.  Our labor-of-love re-mastering has fixed these problems revealing how superior these performances are with that Dorati incisiveness making each performance worthy of the conductor, orchestra and LP label name.  The French horns? Glorious!  The tempos are well chosen and never does it get so hectic to the point where all the inner detail of these symphonies turns into the usual mush. The rest of the CDs of this Beethoven series can be found on P. 16 and 19.

Philadelphia Orchestra 

PROKOFIEV: Symphony Nº 6 in E-Flat Minor /  Major, Op. 111
BRAHMS: Alto Rhapsody - Marian Anderson, alto 
EUGENE ORMANDY In Conversation

    $12.00 per CD

This CD release is a good exposé of the skill of Eugene Ormandy as conductor in 1937 (Brahms) and in 1961 (Prokofiev).  An added bonus is a rare interview with Ormandy in 1967.  The Prokofiev recording is considered by consensus as one of Eugene Ormandy's triumphs although the sonic abrasiveness has been tamed with our now famous "labor of love" intensities.     The Brahms is heart-felt and well recorded for a RCA's 1937 effort.   The Prokofiev is IN STEREO  HQ MP3 PRO sample here

BEETHOVEN: Overture to The Consecration of the House 

    $12.00 per CD

This is one of the special Beethoven recordings which will give you the impression of hearing this familiar music for the first time all over again.  It is an early stereo release with very good sound.  All the needed Czech playing tradition falls splendidly onto this music making it all so correct and never pushed.   And the acoustics of the Rudolfinum?  Incredible! This is a must-have-issue especially if you have yet to find that Beethoven 2 or "Consecration"  recording worthy of your listening experience.   HQ MP3 PRO sample here IN STEREO

One of the more requested recordings from our loyal customers.  Early/Mid 1950's Ormandy in committed performances of both familiar and unfamiliar Strauss.  an unplayed condition LP was the source giving a singular impression that original session mono tapes were edited and transferred.  This is "must have" Ormandy.
