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.

Beethoven – Stravinsky : Sonata in C Major, Op.53 – Petrouchka
Beethoven – Stravinsky : Sonata in C Major, Op.53 – Petrouchka
Appropriate to this recording, his dissertation was on Beethoven's "Waldstein" piano sonata. In 1983 he was appointed principal pianist with the Erie Philharmonic Orchestra. For this recording a custom-built 9-foot concert grand piano was used. This unique instrument, built by Sheldon Smith in his Berkeley, Calif., workshop — where the recording also took place — has a powerful lower register, which provides a substantial left-hand foundation. The upper registers are somewhat less damped and more ringing than is typical of contemporary pianos. Schoeps omnidirectional condenser microphones, in a spaced pair, were used in conjunction with vaccum tube record amplifiers to capture a harmonically rich and accurate sound.

Sale! Berlioz – Requiem
Berlioz – Requiem
A solo male tenor voice is featured in the ninth movement, the Sanctus. There are long held notes played by the flute. Women's voices also sing, perhaps answering the tenor. Later, the low strings and cymbals join in. A full orchestral fugue ends the movement. In his original version, Berlioz requested ten tenors for the solo part. The final movement, containing the Agnus Dei and Communion sections of the Mass, features long held chords by the woodwinds and strings. The movement recapitulates melodies and effects from previous movements.

Billie Holiday : All or Nothing at All
Billie Holiday : All or Nothing at All
As this set demonstrates in the subtle blending and dissolving of moods within one number as well as in the emotional changes throughout the program as a whole, perhaps the primary reason Billie was always able to reach so deeply into her listeners is that more than any other jazz singer, she could communicate the complexities of feeling in which we're all involved.

Charlie  Rouse : Bossa Nova Bacchanal
Charlie Rouse : Bossa Nova Bacchanal
The exact origin of bossa nova is as indeterminable as the genesis of jazz. As Charlie Rouse said, "I've always been every interested in all forms of Latin music, so when the opportunity can along to make this album, I was prepared to make it as authentic as possible, injecting the true rhythmic feeling of bossa nova - that's why I used Latin rhythm players - but also including enough jazz feeling to keep my own personality intact."

Chet Atkins : Atkins in Hollywood
  So what can we tell you about CHET ATKINS IN HOLLYWOOD?  We'll leave the three-syllable adjectives to the press agents and just say that Chet Atkins' West Coast album is merely "posh". Now, "posh" according to the dictionary is a slang term meaning: smart, rich, fine, splendid. Slang or not, it describes exactly Chet's first musical venture in the land of the starlet and swimming pool.
