Excelentná nahrávka na španielsku nôtu. Znalci túto nahrávku považujú za jednu z najlepších aké kedy DECCA urobila.
Bohužiaľ v súčasnosti nedostupná. Len pre informáciu cena prvého vydania v dobrom stave tejto nahrávky sa blíži k cene slušného HIGH END gramofónu. 🙂
To better enjoy this tremendous experience, we would advise listeners to put their feet up, relax, and listen with rapt attention. A “Do-not-disturb” sign on the door is to be recommended. The tremendous sound emanating from the loudspeakers immediately conveys the rousing nature of the music.
Conducted by Ataúlfo Argenta, the London Symphony Orchestra plays with a rare vitality, pure enjoyment, precision and lucidity. This is a carefully chosen medley of Spanish music which, interestingly enough, was mostly written by non-Spanish composers.
All in all, this has become a legendary recording, which caused quite a stir even in its mono version. The FFSS version ranks among the very best recordings ever issued.
Recording: December 1956 and January 1957, Kingsway Hall, London by Gordon Parry / Production: Erik Smith
