This is a terrific copy of a great recording of a classical album that everyone should own.
Background: There are numerous recordings by Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony that are highly regarded by fans of classical music as well as audiophiles. One of the most appreciated titles is the 1958 recording of Prokofiev’s Lt. Kije, and Stravinsky’s Song of the Nightingale.
Originally issued by RCA, the album was in print for decades, with each pressing sounding worse than the one that preceded it, due to tape deterioration. The album has been listed on the recommended list by the music publication The Absolute Sound for years, and for good reason – it’s an amazing recording.
