This recording dates from the beginning of Andre Previn's golden era at the
helm of the London Symphony Orchestra and has been newly mastered from the original stereo EMI Master Tapes.
"The Hi-Q [1812 Overture] was tauter, more transparent, with a bit less upper and mid-bass overhang. In other words, there was less veiling involved. Next, on the Hi-Q I heard more bite on the snare drums, the overall transient quickness and dynamic impact better. High notes were more open on the Hi-Q as well, better clarified... the Marche Slave and Romeo and Juliet pieces seem even more transparent on the XRCD24 remastering." - John J. Puccio, Classical Candor

"If anyone still has a lingering suspicion that a former Hollywood film
composer and jazz pianist might compromise on musical standards, let him hear
this... with superb recording which allows for inner clarity in a rich texture,
with fine discipline and sharp rhythmic pointing (sforzandos meticulously
observed), the musical qualities are reinforced... this is a record to satisfy
the most discriminating..." - Edward Greenfield, Gramophone, July 1973.
