Antill – Corroboree / Ginastera – Panambi
In 1947, Sir Eugene Goossens gave the first performance of this composition that documents the Australian Aboriginal dance known as a "Corroboree". This longplay record was cut directly from the original 35mm magnetic film using an "all tube" cutting system for maximum fidelity.
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.
Scriabin – The Poem of Ecstasy / Amirov – Azerbaijan Mugam
On this disc are two richly colored Russian symphonic works. Interpreting them is Leopold Stokowski, one of the most brilliant conductors of our day. This combination of colorful music and brilliant interpretation has been reproduced by Everest Records with a fidelity of sound that has to be heard to be believed.
