The Philharmonia Hungarica conducted by Antal Dorati conducts the Philharmonia Hungarica in performing Ancient Dances and Airs for Lute by Respighi.
Legendary Mercury Living Presence classical music album pressed on Audiophile Quality 45rpm 180g vinyl.
Comprised of three suites written between 1917 and 1932 and scored variously for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, brass, timpani, celesta, harp and strings, the melodic "street" music is easily grasped and falls on the ear with a comforting familiarity. Respighi's lush yet open and airy arrangements cast a warm, sumptuous, delicate glow that acknowledges the age of the compositions while casting them in modern, 20th Century wrappings.
As a way into "classical music" this rich, spacious recording made in the largest (1840 seat) of the three venues contained within the Vienna Konzerthaus using three omni-directional microphones is difficult to beat. The sound verges on intoxicating, with transparent strings that are light as soufflé and plucked instruments that capture the transient bite with proper speed and authority. The stage is wide and very deep with the recording perfectly capturing the reverberant field and giving it just the right amount of attention so that the instruments project both delicacy and immediacy.

The Grammy-nominated album, Sarah McLachlan’s WINTERSONG was ORG’s debut release on vinyl in cooperation with Nettwerk Records and Arista Records.
The principles of ORG bring decades of music industry experience to this venture, including expertise in A&R, marketing and production.
ORG takes a highly specialized approach to each project and appropriates the right resources specific to it for mastering, pressing, packaging and marketing. Only then can we produce beautiful products at still attainable prices.
Our mission is clear: we want to be known for producing high quality vinyl records of many genres of music for the audiophile and special market sectors.
