Fritz Reiner Prokofieff & Stravinsky Lieutenant Kije & Song Of The Nightingale Hybrid Stereo SACD
The Absolute Sound 40th Anniversary Best Sounding Music!
Remastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound!
Cut From Original 2-Track Session Tapes!
RCA Living Stereo — the gold standard for top quality orchestral
performance and sound!
One of the most sought-after Living Stereos and deservedly so, especially for
the "Song of the Nightingale" which is one of Mohr and Layton's finest efforts.
The sound is truly wonderful on the Stravinsky too. The original 2-track session
tapes were used in mastering for LPs and SACDs.
"...I'd have to say that the usual stumbling blocks have been sidestepped.
Great care has been taken to do the right things, starting with the way the
decision to remaster these RCAs was made." - Jonathan Valin, theabsolutesound.com, June 11, 2013
