Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5 24/96 DVD & 24/192 DVD-A & CD
High Quality 24/96 DVD & 24/192 DVD-A Hybrid Digital Audio Disc (HDAD) - Audio-ONLY DVD!
Sir Malcolm Sargent conducts the London Symphony at Walthamstow Town Hall, London in a beautifully colorful interpretation of Tchaikovsky's infamous 5th Symphony. The Fifth Symphony was at first considered a failure by the composer after its first few performances were poorly received. Further performances proved to the composer and the critics that, in fact, this great Symphony was worthy of further consideration and ultimately widespread acceptance. Orchestras around the world now perform Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony routinely to the thrill of their audiences.
This Bert Whyte Everest recording in 1959 directly onto 3 channels of 35MM magnetic tape captures all the dynamic nuance of Tchaikovsky's multi-layed orchestration in a way most other conventional recordings are incapable of doing. The original edited 3 track 35MM master tapes were used for this historic project of remastering for the Classic Everest 35MM LP and HDAD Series. Using a specially modified Ampex 1551, with Len Horowitz running the tape machine, Bernie Grundman does the honors of transferring to lacquer these 45+ year old gems of recorded history. For the first time ever LP lovers can hear what was captured onto those tracks all those years ago in amazing fidelity and with a Presence that is lost in most recordings. Not to be missed on HDAD 24/96-24/192 and includes a CD version as well!
