RCA/Decca Living Stereo Reissue Series featuring 12 RCA Europe Titles on Both 33 1/3 200g LP & Hybrid Stereo SACD!
Coming on the heels of Analogue Productions' recently announced Decca Classical SACD series of nine famed iconic classical titles, these 12 RCA Europe titles are some of the most sought-after by collectors. Hard-to-find original mint condition pressings fetch premium prices.
And now they're getting the much-lauded Analogue Productions reissue treatment! AP has remastered these historic recordings from the original master tapes. The majority of the titles were remastered by renowned European mastering engineer Willem Makkee while a pair of titles in the series including this SACD were mastered by Bernie Grundman.
Jean Morel conducts the Royal Opera House Orchestra, Convent Garden for this recording of music by Georges Bizet and Emmanuel Chabrier. Large, notably transparent soundstage on this recording, in which the orchestra is set back farther than the usual Decca/RCA. Recorded by beloved Decca audio engineer Kenneth Wilkinson.
