Limited Edition! Only 496 Copies Of this Title Will Be Pressed!
Two genuine art pieces for orchestra and solo violin are on the program on this
record: Astor Piazzolla's composition "Tanti Anni Prima" in a version for string
orchestra and solo violin, and composer Leonard Bernstein's five-movement
Serenade for Violin, String Orchestra, Harp and Percussion. Piazzolla's "Tanti
Anni Prima" shows the grand master of tango nuevo of his tender, lyrical side,
the turn of Italian violin virtuoso Salvatore Accardo and his Orchestra Da
Camera Italiana will serve excellently. Bernstein's Serenade, however, is a
virtuoso tour de force that demands not only a soloist but also a few strings
and percussion machine operators. But Accardo proved himself as a soloist and as
an orchestra conductor in top form. The transparent and detailed room-filling
sound of this recording, making Bernstein's colorful arrangement here in
addition, a special experience. The recording was purely analog Giulio Cesare
Ricci absorbed through Neumann microphones at a Ampex two-track analog machine.
Even the one-stage cut is implemented as pure analog. The LP was pressed in
Germany on high quality 180-gram virgin vinyl. Strictly limited to 496 pieces!
The LP you have chosen has been produced in only 496 copies. This feature will
make it even more unique and exclusive over time.
