Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture - Romeo And Juliet - Previn - London Symphony Orchestra on 180g LP
This recording dates from the beginning of Andre Previn's golden era at the helm of the London Symphony Orchestra and has been newly cut at EMI's Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo EMI Master Tapes. Produced and engineered by the legendary EMI team of Christopher Bishop and Christopher Palmer and pressed on 180g audiophile vinyl.
EMI made the recording in both stereo and quadraphonic, an early attempt at surround sound for the now defunct SQ vinyl format. HiQ has used the superior balance of the stereo master tapes.
"If anyone still has a lingering suspicion that a former Hollywood film composer and jazz pianist might compromise on musical standards, let him hear this... with superb recording which allows for inner clarity in a rich texture, with fine discipline and sharp rhythmic pointing (sforzandos meticulously observed), the musical qualities are reinforced... this is a record to satisfy the most discriminating." - Edward Greenfield, Gramophone, July 1973.
