"…This is, without question, the best transfer of the old three-channel version I've heard from the team doing these transfers…To these ears, it sounds virtually identical to the best of the LP pressings…but with the considerable bonus of that third and center channel, which makes the Scheherazade experience unforgettable and probably about as close to hearing it in Orchestra Hall back in 1960 as you might get." – Harry Pearson, The Absolute Sound, March 2007

Enchantment awaits within. A magic carpet of Living Stereo sound conveys us to mythic Arabia and China, guided by two of Russia’s greatest orchestral masters. A disc of supple and sensuous performances, its clarity and definition improved by the new DSD remastering.

The first batch from a series of 25 cherry-picked RCA Living Stereo classics. Many more to come!
