Ibert, Ravel - Escales (Ports of Call), Rapsodie espagnole/ DSO

Originally recorded at the Cass Technical High School Auditorium in Detroit, this exceptional mixture of French composition was recorded using a three-microphone rig to 35mm magnetic film. Using a film medium was an extremely expensive procedure but the technical advantages, including no hiss, truer transient response, no flutter plus extremely accurate delineation of the timbre of the instruments was worth it. Another 10+ recording transferred by Grundman and Cozart-Fine for Classic Records.
