RCA Living Stereo — the gold standard for top quality orchestral performance
Analogue Productions' RCA Living Stereo Reissue Series No. 2, with 25 newly
remastered mainstay classical albums, will delight and astound your ears with
their clarity and warm, rich tone. Mastered by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound
from the original 3-track master tapes.
This Hybrid SACD plays in all CD and SACD players, as well as all SACD-compatible
Recorded at Kingsway Hall and engineered by Kenneth Wilkinson, this record
couples Moussorgsky's Pictures At An Exhibition with Night On Bare Mountain. It
has long been considered among the greatest sounding records ever made. Perhaps
most stunning about Power of the Orchestra are the effortless dynamics, which
have been reviewed and raved about ever since the first RCA shaded dog. From the
teeny, tiny, itsy, bitsy gentle plucks of strings to the WHAM!! CRASH!! SLAM!!
of a full orchestra without a bit of notice. It's heart-stopping,
jump-out-of-your-seat-type dynamics. The Power of the Orchestra - a more
appropriate title there never was. But to hear it now...! This thing's got all
the weight of an anchor but at the same time the clarity and airiness and
sparkle of a feather. Nuance, a holographic soundstage, emotion to spare - this
one's got it all. A true reference. Power, indeed.
