Kiril Kondrashin was the first Russian conductor to visit America and Europe since the Cold War began, before he defected from the Soviet Union in December 1978.
Kiril Kondrashin conducts the RCA Victor Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Tchaikovsky's Capriccio Italien and Rimsky-Korsekov's Capriccio Espagnol is one of the most sought-after titles in the RCA Living Stereo series.
The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and 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 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.
