- This superb performance of the 5th makes its Hot Stamper debut here with outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish – reasonably quiet vinyl too
- The texture on the strings is captured perfectly – this is an area in which modern pressings fail almost completely
- Clear and transparent and natural – your ability to suspend disbelief requires practically no effort at all
- This is a wonderful recording in every respect – it’s guaranteed to put to shame any Heavy Vinyl pressing of orchestral music you own
Everything sounds so right on this record, so much like live music, there is practically nothing to say about the sound other than You Are There.
This is the kind of record that will make you want to take all your heavy vinyl classical pressings and put them in storage. Practically none of them will ever begin to sound the way this record sounds.
Quality record production is a lost art, and it’s been lost for a very long time. (more…)
