Mendelssohn - Concerto In E - Prokofiev - Concerto No 2 - Heifetz - Munch - Boston Symphony on Hybrid SACD

RCA Living Stereo Series from Analogue Productions

25 Premier-Sounding Titles from RCA's Living Stereo Golden Era Available on 200g LP (Cut at 33 1/3) & Hybrid SACD (Most Will Be 3-Channel)

Remastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound in New York

RCA's "golden age" was more like a "golden minute" - in a scant period, roughly from 1958 to 1963, the beginning of the stereo era - pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and midband illumination.

This 1958 3-track recording has Jascha Heifetz teamed up with Charles Munch and the Boston Symphony for brilliant takes on Mendelssohn's "Violin Concerto In E Minor, Opus 64" and Prokofieff's "Violin Concerto In G Minor, Opus 63." Cutting the lacquer directly from the original session master tapes has increased the transparency and 3-dimensional imaging on this reissue over original pressings. The performance, as always with the last century's top violinist, is almost without compare. This reissue has beautiful string tone, superior low end dynamics and very deep bass!

Packaged in the original tip-on jacket facsimiles that precisely duplicate the original cover art, including the "Living Stereo" logo, LSC numbers and "Shaded Dog" label. These new versions are clearer than the originals and warmer and richer than past reissues! Hybrid Stereo SACD playable on all CD players.
