Super HD-Vinyls 24/192 (RR) Hector Berlioz – Symphonie Fantastique (Kojian)

front-small-boxsetRevisited (now in 192k) with the Black Bird Gang and the AR SP15
This is absolute one of the most splendid and colourful recordings that RR had yet made. Kojian and the Utah symphony deliver a performance that is second to none. And the sound! Can its recording engineer Keith Johnson, or anyone else exceed this? – Must Have –
Audiophile Factor: The highest possible!
Artistic Factor: One of the very best “Fantastique”

Pay attention: side 3 & side 4 are identically despite a little detail: once i read (but don’t remember where) “Dream Of A Witches Sabbath” was recorded using tubular bells and, on the other side, recorded using real church bells. Reference Recordings states on the rear cover that side 3 and side 4 are pressed twice, because the last two pieces of the symphony are the most played by customers, so they did this instead of letting side 4 blank, what their 1st intention was……and, please, take care of your equipment, especially of your speakers.
