Harold Farberman conducts the All Star Percussion Ensemble for this wonderful
group of percussion arrangements of popular light classics by Bizet, Beethoven,
Pachelbel and Berlioz.
For this recording, Farberman has recorded works by four composers utilizing the
All-Star Percussion Ensemble. The ensemble features ten head percussionists from
seven famous orchestras in the U.S.A., many of whom were Farberman’s students.
The 10 players handled a total of some 60 to 80 instruments, varying from piece
to piece. On a high resolution audio system there are slight noises of the
players’ footsteps as they run from one instrument to another, maintaining
synchronicity with Farberman’s innovative arrangements.
Originally recorded March 8 and April 12, 1982, at New York’s Vanguard Recording
Studio, Golden String and First Impression Music are pleased to present this
200-gram LP reissue, remastered using the latest digital technology, the Ultra
HD 32-bit mastering format and pressed by Quality Record Pressings. This LP is
packaged in a graphic-embossed box with a hinged lid.
