Offered for sale is an original 1960 RCA Living Stereo pressing of Dvorak’s Slavonic Dances, performed by Jean Martinon and the London Symphony Orchestra.
About this copy: This copy of Slavonic Dances is an original 1960 RCA Living Stereo pressing, complete with 1s stampers on both sides and the letter “I” in the dead wax, indicating that it was pressed at RCA’s Indianapolis, Indiana, pressing plant.
The cover is M- and is still almost pure white. It does have a minor dent in one corner.
The disc is M-, and aside from a couple of very faint sleeve scuffs, looks to be virtually unplayed. The disc does have a bit of surface noise, as is common on many older RCA titles.
Background: This original pressing of Slavonic Dances includes Dvorak’s first group of compositions under that title, also referred to collectively as Opus 46, as well as one track from the later Opus 72:
- No. 1 in D (Presto)
- No. 2 in E minor (Allegretto scherzando)
- No. 3 in A? major (Poco allegro)
- No. 4 in F major (Tempo di Minuetto)
- No. 5 in A major (Allegro vivace)
- No. 6 in D major (Allegretto scherzando)
- No. 7 in C minor (Allegro assai)
- No. 8 in G minor (Presto)
- No. 7 in C – (Allegro vivace) (Opus 72)
This recording is one of the better recordings that RCA released during their 1958-1963 Living Stereo heyday. Classic Records reissued the recording in the 1990s.
