An Audiophile Dream Come True: Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Kevin Gray and Pressed at RTI. Moussorgsky's A Night on Bare Mountain and Pictures at an Exhibition Have Never Sounded Better! One of the Best-Sounding Albums Ever Made Just Got Better! Recorded at Kingsway Hall and engineered by Kenneth Wilkinson, this record couples Moussorgsky's Pictures At An Exhibition with Night On Bare Mountain. It has long been considered among the greatest sounding records ever made. Perhaps most stunning about The Power of the Orchestra are the effortless dynamics, which have been reviewed and raved about ever since the first RCA shaded dog. From the gentle plucks of strings to the explosion of a full orchestra without a bit of notice. It's heart-stopping, jump-out-of-your-seat-type dynamics.
Now on 180g 45 RPM 2LP, The Power of the Orchestra more than lives up to its name. This thing's got all the weight of an anchor but at the same time the clarity and airiness and sparkle of a feather. Nuance, a holographic soundstage, emotion to spare, this one's got it all. A true reference. Power, indeed!
