Mahler - Symphony No. 3 - Forrester - Mehta - Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra on Hybrid Stereo SACD + CD

Analogue Productions' Best of Decca Classical SACD Reissue Series

Includes 9 Decca Titles All Remastered from the Original Master Tapes by Willem Makee

Due to such resounding critical and customer support for their first RCA Living Stereo reissue series featuring 25 premier-sounding titles - Analogue Productions knew classical music lovers were hungry for more. Their Decca Classical SACD Series includes nine Decca titles on Hybrid Stereo SACD (no LPs for this series). Each historical title has been remastered from the original master tapes and the digital transfers were made by renowned European mastering engineer Willem Makee.

Early London/Decca Stereo Classical instrumental and chamber music recordings (1956-1963) contain some of the premient historical musical performances, many of which remain unequalled today. These reissued titles are very sought-after by collectors, never before available in a high-resolution digital format. The SACDs have been authored for the series by Gus Skinas of the Super Audio Center in Boulder, CO and are designed to be the finest editions of these recordings ever reissued!

Zubin Mehta conducts the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra in an overwhelming performance of Gustav Mahler's 2-part, 6-movement Symphony No. 3 In D Minor with Maureen Forrester (contralto), Sidney Harth (violin) and Robert di Vall (posthorn). Made in March of 1978 at Royce Hall in Los Angeles, CA by recording engineers James Lock and Simon Eadon, this staging of Mahler's Symphony No. 3 is considered to be one of the best Decca recordings available. 

Disc 1 is a hybrid SACD containing the complete album on the SACD layer. Due to the time constraints of the CD format, the performance is split between Discs 1 & 2.

Musicians:
Gustav Mahler (composer)
Zubin Mehta (conductor)
Maureen Forrester (contralto)
