Khachaturian Gayne Ballet Suite 200g LP
As with his Decca recordings of Ballet Music, Fistoulari again delivers a
lively reading of Khachaturian's famous ballet piece. Is this performance the
equal of the HP acclaimed Mercury - no, ITS BETTER! Add to that earth shattering
bass power and spacious detail - especially in ambient high frequency range and
you have a winner that is both delightful and revealing to listen to over and
over again. Bert Whyte is again at the controls for another outstanding EVEREST
35 mm recording at London's famed Walthamstow Assembly Hall - the same hall used
extensively by the Decca and Kenneth Wilkinson.
The LP was cut directly from the 35mm magnetic film using a vintage Westrex 1551
tape machine, with specially built playback electronics that are vastly superior
to any others used on these machines to playback the original 35mm tapes. The
Len Horowitz / History of Recorded Sound specially modified 1551, fitted with
brand new playback heads matched to the revolutionary playback electronics was
stationed at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood. With Len Horowitz running
the playback machine and Bernie Grundman mastering from the three track 35mm
tapes, Classic Records has been able to cut the legendary sound and performances
directly from the 35mm magnetic film through Classic's "ALL TUBE" tape playback
system and cutting system at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood.
The LP is pressed on Classic's 200g Super Vinyl Profile making it possible to
get every nuance out of the non-distorted grooves that make SVP sound superior
to all other records on the market today. Authentic tip on construction jackets
with all original artwork and labels add to this must have deluxe LP edition!
