This HDAD+ package contains two discs, one is a two-sided DVD-10 containing two channel 24 bit/192 kHz data and three-channel 24 bit/96 kHz data on one side, playable on DVD Audio players, and on the other side two channel 24 bit 96 kHz data and three channel Dolby AC-3, playable on DVD video players. The second disc included is a standard two-channel CD containing 16 bit/44.1 kHz data playable on all CD and DVD players. Transferred directly from the original 35mm three-track film by Bernie Grundman from Bernie Grundman Mastering and Len Horowitz from History of Recorded Sound at Bernie Grundman Mastering, Hollywood.

This release is a compilation of Stokowski/Houston performances recorded at Houston Civic Center by Bert Whyte and originally released in 1960. Compositions include Stokowski arrangements of Wotan's Farewell and Magic Fire Music from Wagner's Die Walkure, Mazurka in A minor, Prelude in D minor and Waltz in C sharp minor by Chopin. Also included is the not-often-performed-or-recorded Fantasy on a Hymn Tune composed by Thomas Canning. The HDAD Plus is a two-disc set consisting of a two-sided DVD-10 disc containing DVD Audio and DVD video formats, plus a bonus CD from a separate 16 bit/44.1 kHz two channel capture done simultaneously for the CD format to avoid non-integer down sampling and hence provide for maximum quality – all transferred directly from the 35mm magnetic film using a vintage Westrex 1551 tape machine.
