More Kodaly / Hary Janos Suite / Kertesz


A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This is a SUPERB recording, a real sleeper in the world of audiophile pressings. The sound is BIG, BOLD and DYNAMIC as practically any classical record you can name. And the distortion level is vanishingly small as well. 

This British pressing has an AMAZING SIDE ONE (A++) backed with an excellent side two (A+), both on very quiet vinyl! I’m a big fan of this music and here’s a pressing that really delivers. Side one of the album has the complete Suite, and with Super Hot Stamper sound this copy is guaranteed to knock you out. One of the top Kertesz recordings on London.
