This album, originally released in 1960, features selections from William Tell, Khovantchina, Aida, and Samson & Delilah, performed by the Paris Conservatoire Orchestra. Very lively midrange with superbly coherent staging, top rank clarity and deep, powerful and well-defined bass. Recorded by beloved Decca audio master Kenneth Wilkinson.
