Exploring Decca's early high-fidelity audio history, this limited edition set of acclaimed recordings from the Mono era includes restored recordings featuring conductors from Ansermet to Solti and great soloists of the era such as Clifford Curzon and Julius Katchen. Includes original cover art from each recording.

Seventy years ago, amidst war-time privations, a small team at Decca made technological breakthroughs that brought hi-fi to the world. This latest cube explores Decca's earliest high-fidelity history, and restores some restores critically acclaimed albums from ensembles such as the Trio di Trieste, Quintetto Chigiano and Griller Quartet which have not been available since their original LP release more than 60 years ago.

An equally impressive array of soloists includes pianists Clifford Curzon, Julius Katchen, Friedrich Gulda and Moura Lypmany and violinists Ruggiero Ricci and Alfredo Campoli. Several generations of cellists are represented with recordings by Pierre Fournier, Maurice Gendron and Zara Nelsova.
