This is the long out of print Classic Records audiophile reissue of the famous album titled "The Royal Ballet - Gala Performances" (RCA Soria LDS 6065).
It consists of #2LP 33rpm RECORDS PRESSED ON 180 GRAM VINYL and NUMBERED (1st EDITION)
The Royal Ballet has historically been the most highly sought after of the RCA Living Stereo releases. Recorded in Kingsway Hall by the legendary Kenneth Wilkinson, this title features selections from The Nutcracker Suite, Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty among others.
The performances are conducted by Ernest Ansermet directing the Royal Opera House Orchestra and the sonics are incomparable.
The GREAT ONE !! Stunning sound originally captured by U.K. Decca Engineers for RCA Living Stereo in a way that's never been equaled.
This half speed mastered deluxe box set achieved sound quality that virtually every critic ranked better than Soria Box !
Classic records used the same master tape to make this record as RCA did , but classic mastered it at half-speed , meaning the tape was played back at half speed while the master laquer was cut at half speed.This process enables more of the frequancy and spatial resolution of the musical signal to be transferred from tape to laquer, resulting in greater signal to noise ratio and wider dynamic range.
Finally only thsi first Classic edition was made when the master tapes were still relatively fre of age-related degradation.
Mastered by audio legend Bernie Grundman , this was Classic Records' attempt to achieve the ultimate in vinyl sound quality.
