RCA Living Stereo — the gold standard for top quality orchestral performance and sound!

Remastered from the original master tape by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound

"The JVC XRCD version gets most of it right except the sonic spectrum is so dramatically skewed to the high frequencies that the loud brass instruments sometime sound too penetrating. Prokofiev's transparent orchestration does emphasize the highs, but on this Analogue Productions SACD it all sounds subtly more recessed and perfectly natural because of the increased open airiness." — Arthur Lintgen, The Absolute Sound, January 2015

One of the most sought-after Living Stereos and deservedly so, especially for the "Song of the Nightingale" which is one of Mohr and Layton's finest efforts. The sound is truly wonderful on the Stravinsky too. The original 3-track session tapes were used in mastering for LPs and SACDs.
