Mastered by Willem Makee from the original master tapes

An early classic for Decca/RCA engineered by none other than Kenneth Wilkinson, who became so closely identified with the Decca sound that he retired when PolyGram acquired the company in 1980. Music of Grieg & Sibelius from the late great Charles Mackerras and the London Symphony Orchestra. The strings here are cool, crisp and extremely transparent with wonderful inner detail within the choirs.

Recorded in Walthamstow Assembly Hall
Producer: Michael Williamson
Engineer: Kenneth Wilkinson
