The Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto, like the Beethoven and Brahms companion concertos, requires a true virtuoso to reveal it in its proper light. Fortunately, such a virtuoso was Tossi Spivikovsky, who accompanies Walter Goehr conducting the London Symphony Orchestra to a rousing performance. The LP, as are all reissues from this series, was cut directly from the 35mm magnetic film using a vintage Westrex 1551 tape machine, with specially built playback electronics that are vastly superior to any others used on these machines to playback the original 35mm tapes. The Len Horowitz/History of Recorded Sound specially modified 1551, fitted with brand new playback heads matched to the revolutionary playback electronics was stationed at Berne Grundman Mastering in Hollywood. With Len Horowitz running the playback machine and Bernie Grundman mastering from the three track 35mm tapes, Classic Records has been able to cut the legendary sound and performances directly from the 35mm magnetic film through Classic's all-tube tape playback system and cutting system. Authentic tip-on construction jackets with all original artwork and labels add to this must-have deluxe LP edition as part of the Classic Everest 35mm LP Series.
