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

This is an original Mercury LP with an AMAZING sound and EXTREMELY quiet vinyl! This has got that Mercury LIFE to it! The sound may be slightly on the dry side, but all the instruments have wonderful texture and tonality.

And of course, this is music that belongs in any collection. It’s some of the greatest and most accessible classic music ever written.
