AAA 100%  Analogue - Audiophile Mastering at Abbey Road

Pressed at Pallas  - Limited Edition - Capitiol SP 8510

Testament has revived these classic titles from the EMI catalog using only the original EMI master tapes,cut onto lacquer at EMI's Abbey Road Studios and mastered using full analog techniques throughout production.

Beautiful full-dimensional stereo. Michael Rabin, violin; Felix Slatkin conducting The Hollywood Symphony Bowl Orchestra. Works by Kreisler, Massenet, Sarasate and others. Gorgeous sound on this amazing record.

This studio recording is collection of the short violin pieces made famous by Kreisler and Heifetz; i.e. Caprice Viennois, Hora Staccato, Moto Perpetuo, Flight of the Bumble Bee, etc. The music is very well recorded with the young Michael Rubin up in front of the orchestra. With the close mic'ing of the violin you can hear every subtle inflection of the violin. The conductor, a famous violinist in his own right, blends the orchestra in with the violin. The orchestra does not overwhelm solo violin. Instead it stays in the background letting solo violin be the center of attraction while still adding a subtle, but essential accompaniment. The original Capitol issue of this recording was on a rainbow label. The rainbow label pressings, while sounding somewhat better than other Capitol pressing, were nothing to write home about. Capitol, like Columbia, made many wonderful recordings of incredible performances which were ruined in the mastering and pressing. If you like these kind of violin show pieces you will be hard pressed to find a better sounding recording. The performances are quite nice as well. PositiveFeedback Review
