"The product of a brilliant 17-year-old, this symphony, while not a masterwork to rank with the Beethoven symphonies it emulated, is nevertheless a quite remarkable effort. Cast in four movements, it is already decidedly grander in scale and outlook than the 1813 Symphony No. 1. This B flat major symphony generally lasts 30 to 35 minutes in performance." - AMG.

A very detailed recording. The soundstage is wide and deep with pin-point imaging.Instruments are captured with tremendous detail - you can hear the resin on the bows and the intonation of various stringed instruments. Deep bass, a sweet mid-range and transparent high's. One of the most natural and realistic recordings of an orchestra.
Hardly any surface noise - just the occassional low-level, random "tick/crackle".
Each record is washed on a VPI cleaning machine using a proprietary 3-5 agent process which is determined by the needs of the individual record. Each record is then listened to 100% to insure that the posted description is exactly what you can expect to get.
