Mendelssohn “A Midsummer Nights Dream” London FFSS CS 6001 Blue Back Peter Maag conducting The London Symphony Orchestra with Jennifer Vyvyan (Soprano); Marion Lowe (Soprano) and female Chorus of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. This performance has been critically reviewed for over 30 years as one of the best of Mendelssohn’s delightful score. It is a rendition of great warmth and verve. The Kingsway Hall acoustics result in sound that is a model of concert hall realism. Listen to the Scherzo and you’ll love your 10th row seat: an up close picture of the orchestra with air around the instruments and superb imaging and depth. The one sonic detraction is the bright high strings-typical of London/Decca sound of its era. Nevertheless, a clear winner: Recorded February, 1957, Kingsway Hall. Kenneth E. Wilkinson, engineer. Condition; Vinyl, Side One, EX, Side Two EX. Performance a 10, Sound, a 9. Jacket, VG, 3” seam split top right of jacket. PayPal please pay 3%. Thank you for looking.
