Contents & Details
Béla Bartók (1881 - 1945) composed Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta in 1936.
Fritz Reiner was unsurpassed at conducting Béla Bartok. This Layton/Mohr recording from 1958 supremely captures Bartok's melodic beauty, angular rhythms and sense of logic and balance. This gem from the golden age of RCA continues to inspire and amaze!
The "golden age" of recordings was roughly from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.
This Analogue Productions LP was remastered by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound, using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head and was pressed on 200-gram virgin vinyl at Quality Record Pressings.
