Thank you for submitting a review!
Your input is very much appreciated. Share it with your friends so they can enjoy it too!
These are celebrated recordings, excellently transferred. One star deducted for the unhelpful, mildly gonzo coupling.
Klemperer and Boult cycles somewhat better - so no surprise, there. Generally excellent SQ, with beautiful vocals and recessed orchestra - quite appropriate, here.
Musically, a masterpiece that HDTT with its work can re-propose as best it could not be. Excellent!
Finally, I got a great replacement for my Living Stereo LP. The sound is perfect.
Classic standards + Reiner/Chicago & Marriner/ St. Martin's, well recorded & mastered. What's not to like?
