Moussorgsky The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Leibowitz The Power Of The Orchestra A Night On Bald Mo
Just listen to the enormous crash that follows the introduction, and the awesome sense of space that the reverberation and decay reveal. I am quite sure that this was recorded in Kingsway Hall, London. Everything here is superb. Dynamic shifts are staggering, with a deep bass foundation that suggests the real thing, and the noise floor is low enough to reveal pages turning, chairs shifting, etc. The soundstage is vast and expansive in both width and depth Nina Simone Nina Simone And Her Friends images within it quite distinct.
Don't miss the unusual addition of a wind machine towards the end of the piece, an effect you will not hear anywhere else. Even if you've heard these pieces a hundred times, I guarantee you will be emotionally drained by the end of this record, and in awe of the artistry involved with every aspect of this production.
Top recommendation. This, along with Munch's earlier reading of "Daphnis et Chloe", the earlier "Gaite Parisienne" with Fiedler, David T Walker David T Walker Oscar Danon's "Petroushka" are considered the best of Chesky's vinyl imput.
These particular titles, unlike the earlier LPs, were mastered by Tim de Paravicini through custom built tube Mahavishnu Orchestra Birds Of Fire at his own facility, and pressed on gm vinyl. Perhaps one reason may be that the superb Chesky release is a hard act to beat.
Unlike many of their earlier Living Stereo reissues, which were criticised for their sonic shortcomings, the "Power" reissue won instant acclaim, finding Moussorgsky The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Leibowitz The Power Of The Orchestra A Night On Bald Mo place on the top of many critic's lists. As is the case with many reissues of RCA material, it seems there are losses in ambient air, the shaded dogs possessing a glow that is somewhat reduced in the reissue.
The debate rages on as to why this might be so. Certainly the age of the tapes involved us a factor. Tape is The Maine Forever Halloween somewhat fragile medium for long term storage. Some of these tapes are 50 years old, and extreme high frequency information where the "air" is is the first to go.

This is a great recording and starting set of performances; I just wish Analogue Productions would resurrect more classical like this! The impact of the two Mussourgsky pieces is, indeed, sledge-hammer like.
