Shortly before the demise of Classic Records, the label had started a “Classic Records Presents” series of classical titles. Unfortunately, there were only two titles released before they went out of business. Both were released on their 200g Quiex SV-P vinyl and both have excellent sound quality. This was the first one.
From the Classic Records website:
Recorded on Oct 11th and 12th 1999 by the Elite Recording team of Marc Aubort and the late Joanna Nickrenz on behalf of Classic Records. This first in the series of “Classic Records Presents” features Pavel Kogan conducting his Moscow State Symphony Orchestra performing a piece of music they both know and well understand. The venue for the recording is the famous Congress House in Graz, Austria. The performance and recording are equally superb.
Many argue that Russian orchestral music is best performed by Russians and this performance lends credibility to that assertion. The recording was mastered and cut by Bernie Grundman using Classic’s ALL TUBE analog cutting system and pressed on our proprietary 200g Super Vinyl Profile for maximum fidelity and musical pleasure. This package also includes a bonus 7″ recording of Shostakovitch’s “The Coachman’s Dance” which, cut at 45 rpm, is a real thrill and a Kogan favorite encore piece.
