Borodin, Rimski Korsakoff – Symphony No.2 In B Minor, Cappricio, Espagnole, Tsar Saltan (1959) {Analogue Productions; Remastered, Ltd, 200g; 24-96} + 16-44


R.I.P. SPEARO MY FRIEND, I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!

This is a happy marriage between conductor and orchestra in the second symphony by Borodin. The orchestra was bristling with talent such as Gervase de Peyer on clarinet and Barry Tuckwell on horn and Hugh Maguire the leader of the London Symphony Orchestra until 59′ on Violin. The sound is very direct but the orchestra stands up very well to this. Martinon’s interpretation is refreshing and very up-beat.

R.I.P. SPEARO MY FRIEND, I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!

Analogue Productions has taken a classic and shaped it to make the premier reissue of this already illustrious LP. Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound mastered this album from the original analog tapes. The lacquer cuts were plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings. The Stoughton Printing old-style tip-on gatefold jacket has been upgraded handsomely by a series of rarely seen photos of Walter from the Sony Music Archives. Everything on this reissue shows quality. Released as 45rpm version as well one can argue this is the best possible version to get . A highly collectable and highly sonical “MUST Have” for the classic music lover.
