"Ernest Ansermet's authority in the music of Stravinsky was unsurpassed. He had a close working relationship with the composer for a quarter of a century and was involved in the original productions of a number of his most significant works including The Firebird, The Rite of Spring, Petrushka, The Soldier's Tale, The Song of the Nightingale and Pulcinella. Ansermet's recordings, which were both meticulous and inspired, were the ones to have even after Stravinsky himself took up the baton." - JSA Review
The record is Mint.
The Jacket is Good.
The LP plays/sounds Mint.
Spectacular Side II (Symphony in 3 Movements). Incredible imaging, dynamics and ambience. Very strong detail with an almost 3-D sound stage. Each instrument defines it's own space and there is no image wander at all. Side I is excellent also.
Minor, low-level surface noise which is barely audible and random.
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.
