performance and sound!
Maestro Stokowski is at the podium and Bob Simpson is at the 3-track Ampex
recorder to capture the Rhapsodies from Liszt, Enesco and Smetana that give this
issue its title. This is titanic sound that will sink most speakers and amps for
that matter. A must have. The original 3-track session tapes were used in
mastering this LP from the Analogue Production reissue series.
"These are the best vinyl releases of RCA LPs I've yet heard." — Jonathan
Valin, executive editor, The Absolute Sound
"...I'd have to say that the usual stumbling blocks have been sidestepped.

decision to remaster these RCAs was made." -Jonathan Valin, theabsolutesound.com, June 11, 2013
"These records are definitive." -Michael Fremer, analogplanet.com
