Sargent seems to have a real feel for these Russian Orchestral Favorites. Both performances are in the Sargent tradition of a little slower in pace than some of his contemporaries, however, as we all know faster is not always better. In this case, the deliberate pace is very revealing of the glorious intricacy of these classical gems. Refreshing interpretations by a top-notch conductor with a world-class orchestra in the heart of the golden age of recording – what more can an audiophile ask for? These Everest 35mm recordings by Bert Whyte at London's famed Walthamstow Assembly Hall are truly Majestic in their size and sense of orchestral realism, mostly due to the high and low frequency detail and dynamics that are recorded only on 35mm film. In the words of Len Horowitz from History of Recorded Sound, "35mm has its own wisdom." It is hard to describe other than to say that there is something about the live event that 35mm can capture and recreate that you can't get from conventional tape formats – there is a certain retained magic with 35mm, as this disc, like the rest, will attest.
