Bartok : Concerto for Orchestra
Bartok : Concerto for Orchestra
Each 2LP set comes with a Stoughton Printing tip-on original jacket and an Everest Records branded jacket showing photos of each reissue title. The two LPs are packaged in a protective clear sleeve. Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra derives its name from the approach taken in treating instrument groups within the orchestra in a ‘concertante' or soloist manner throughout the piece. This virtuoso treatment, for example, is notable in the fugato section of the first movement where the brass are highlighted as well as in the second movement where pairs of instruments appear consecutively creating a brilliant passage. Stokowski's interpretation of this popular Bartok composition was recorded at the Houston Civic Center by Bert Whyte and team and originally released in March of 1961.

Sale! Khachaturian – Concerto for Piano and Orchestra
Khachaturian – Concerto for Piano and Orchestra
A Hugo Rignold/LSO performance of this brilliant showpiece for orchestra with piano accompaniment performed superlatively by Peter Katin. The recording, another of the great Bert Whyte efforts, was staged in 1959 at London's famous Walthamstow Hall, the site of many famous Decca recordings. The LP, as are all reissues from this series, was cut directly from the 35mm magnetic film using a vintage Westrex 1551 tape machine, with specially built playback electronics that are vastly superior to any others used on these machines.

Prokofiev: Symphony No. 5 in B flat major, Op. 100
Prokofiev: Symphony No. 5 in B flat major, Op. 100
It has been said that "the Fifth Symphony embodies the highest achievements of Prokofiev the orchestrator, uniting an intoxicating many-colored palette with a clean discipline of orchestral development." Nowhere in recorded form have these orchestral colors been captured with such startling fidelity in large part due to the efforts of Everest as a pioneer in the art of 35mm magnetic tape recording under the supervision of Bert Whyte.

Sibelius : Concerto in D minor, Op.47
Sibelius : Concerto in D minor, Op.47
This, Sibelius' only violin concerto, was completed in 1903 and contains segments that require virtuosity to do full justice to its technical and interpretive intricacies. Just such a virtuoso, in Tossy Spivakovsky, plays violin on this Everest recording of Tauno Hannikainen conducting The London Symphony Orchestra. The recording is another Bert Whyte sonic triumph on 35mm film. In addition to the concerto, Whyte and team recorded Sibelius' last tone poem, Tapiola, referred to by many as a consummate masterpiece written with extraordinary simplicity and directness. The LP was cut directly from the 35mm magnetic film using a vintage Westrex 1551 tape machine, with specially built playback electronics that are vastly superior to any others used on these machines to playback the original 35mm tapes.
