Fjeldstad's record was one of really outstanding early Decca stereo LPs. The LSO is very sensitive, and the tender string playing in Oveig's Song is quite lovely. The conductor begins in Hall of Mountain King rather slowly but builds up a blaze of excitement at the end and that justifies his conception. This recording contained the wide dynamic of the final crescendo at a demonstration quality. This is a recommendable disc and has a vividly clear transfer.
