Holst The Planets (Previn/London Symphony Orchestra) on 180g LP from Hi-Q
Cut at EMI's Abbey Road Studios from the Original Master Tapes: Incredible Sound!
Pressed on Super-Quiet 180g Vinyl: Hear into Kingsway Hall's Acoustics
Superb 1973 Performance of One of the Most Beloved Classical Works in History
Classical compositions don't come more vetted than Holst's The Planets, devised at a time when the composer was enthralled with space. And performances of this revered piece don't come any better than Andre Previn leading the celebrated London Symphony Orchestra, circa 1973. There's a reason why this rendition is among the most prized among collectors and audiophiles. Hi-Q's analog remaster brings it to life in ways never thought possible.
Originally recorded at London's much-missed Kingsway Hall on September 28 and 29 of 1973, and produced and engineered by the legendary EMI team of Christopher Bishop and Christopher Palmer, this classic recording from the golden era of André Previn and the London Symphony Orchestra has been cut at EMI's Abbey Road Studios from the original EMI master tapes and pressed on 180g vinyl. You will not find a better-sounding edition of this masterpiece!
