Peter Maag conducts the London Symphony Orchestra with sopranos Jennifer Vyvyan
and Marion Lowe for this recording of A Midsummer Night's Dream by Mendelssohn.
"...the instrumental harmonics are mostly life-like—especially the woodwinds and brass. It's difficult to believe this was recorded fifty years ago...A superb reissue in every way." - Michael Fremer, www.musicangle.com, Music 10/10, Sound 10/10
"[A] highly enjoyable version of the incidental music for A Midsummer Night's Dream... Maag walk[s] the fine line between the tension and joyfulness that infuse[s] Shakespeare’s comedy... Given that the original Blue Back was a wonderful recording to begin with, ORG’s decision to remaster at 45rpm moves 'wonderful' into the realm of 'superb.' Dynamic swings abound in this piece, so if your system is up to the task, you’ll hear the full effect. The stereo spread is naturally rendered, both in terms of depth and especially width." - John Crossett, theaudiobeat.com, 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sound
