An Audiophile Dream Come True: Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes
"As triumphantly displayed on the jacket, this album pairs two classical sonic blockbusters on one LP-culminating in "The Great Gates of Kiev... At its best, the Thee Power of the Orchestra possesses a wonderful bloom, sense of hall, powerful low frequency extension and beautiful string tone. Exactly everything one comes to expect from a reference caliber recording!" - Myles B. Astor, Positive-Feedback.
"Some find guilty pleasure in hot fudge sundae; others in shoes; and some in things I can't write about here. For audiophiles, it's in records like The Power of the Orchestra, surely one of the most thrilling ever made." - Wayne Garcia,
The Absolute Sound,
"Re-mastered by George Marino, this 45-rpm edition delivers - in spades - all this LP is desired for: a palette of instrumental colors as vivid as Kodachrome and as rich as a sampler of chocolate confections; a magnificently lifelike soundstage of tremendous width, depth, and air; and brass choirs, massed strings, high and low percussion delivered with extraordinary weight and effortless dynamic power. The ultimate demonstration disc, it's guaranteed to show what your system can and can't do." The Absolute Sound,
One of the undisputed finest recordings in the history of classical music now sounds better than ever! Simply put, The Power Of The Orchestra will blow you away! Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes
A recording this bold, this bombastic with totally jaw-dropping dynamics just begged to be cut at 45 RPM. Oh, it was awesome at 33 1/3 - no question. But wait 'till you hear it now. Unbelievable!
Recorded at Kingsway Hall and engineered by Kenneth Wilkinson, this record couples Moussorgsky's Pictures At An Exhibition with Night On Bare Mountain. It has long been considered among the greatest sounding records ever made. Perhaps most stunning about Power of the Orchestra are the effortless dynamics, which have been reviewed and raved about ever since the first RCA shaded dog. From the teeny, tiny, itsy, bitsy gentle plucks of strings to the WHAM!! CRASH!! SLAM!! of a full orchestra without a bit of notice. It's heart-stopping, jump-out-of-your-seat-type dynamics. The Power of the Orchestra - a more appropriate title there never was. But to hear it at 45 RPM...! This thing's got all the weight of an anchor but at the same time the clarity and airiness and sparkle of a feather. Nuance, a holographic soundstage, emotion to spare - this one's got it all. A true reference. Power, indeed.

Now on 180g 45 RPM 2LP, The Power of the Orchestra more than lives up to its name. This thing's got all the weight of an anchor but at the same time the clarity and airiness and sparkle of a feather. Nuance, a holographic soundstage, emotion to spare, this one's got it all.
