RCA Living Stereo classical LPs - the gold standard for top quality
orchestral performance and sound!
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. As with our first highly-regarded LSC series,
shortcomings of previous editions have been improved upon — from the mastering,
to the LP pressing, to the sharp-looking glossy heavyweight Stoughton Printing
tip-on jackets that faithfully duplicate the original artwork, "Living Stereo"
logo, "Shaded Dog" label and all!
Mastered by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound from the original 3-track master
tapes, cut at 33 1/3, and plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings —
makers of the world's finest-sounding vinyl LPs, — no other editions match these
for the quietest 200-gram platters available.
Charles Munch was the opposite of the "intellectual" school of French
conductors, as typified by Pierre Boulez. He was a completely spontaneous
artist, which is what made him the great Berlioz conductor of our time, and
literally anything could happen when he got up onto the podium. It follows then,
that his Ravel is not going to be the sort of hyper-precise, calculated sort of
interpretation that many fans of the composer expect, but it will be exciting as
hell. These three pieces are shrewdly chosen; they are the composer's most
extrovert works, and Munch pulls out all of the stops in his performances of
them. A classic recording, and a great memento of a unique artist.
