An Audiophile Dream Come True: Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes
One of the Undisputed Finest Recordings in the History of Classical Music Now Sounds Better Than Ever! Simply Put, The Power Of The Orchestra Will Blow You Away!
A recording this bold, this bombastic with totally jaw-dropping dynamics just begged to be cut at 45 RPM. Oh, it was awesome at 33 1/3 – no question. But wait ’till you hear it now. UN-FREAKIN’-BELIEVABLE!!

Mastered by George Marino.

“The original The Power of the Orchestra has been on many ‘best recording’ lists, and the discontinued Chesky reissue, with Leibowitz and the Royal Phil, made it on HP’s Super Disc list. Yeah, this is one of the best RCA Living Stereo DECCA recordings at Kingsway Hall by Kenneth Wilkinson and pristine original copies cost a mint. This is really accessible, power classical music.” – Jim Hannon, AVguide.com

Recorded at Kingsway Hall and engineered by Kenneth Wilkinson, this record couples Moussorgsky’s Pictures At An Exhibition with Night On Bare Mountain. It has long been considered among the greatest sounding records ever made. Perhaps most stunning about Power of the Orchestra are the effortless dynamics, which have been reviewed and raved about ever since the first RCA shaded dog. From the teeny, tiny, itsy, bitsy gentle plucks of strings to the WHAM!! CRASH!! SLAM!! of a full orchestra without a bit of notice. It’s heart-stopping, jump-out-of-your-seat-type dynamics. The Power of the Orchestra – a more appropriate title there never was. But to hear it at 45 RPM…Oh! My! God! This thing’s got all the weight of an anchor but at the same time the clarity and airiness and sparkle of a feather. Nuance, a holographic soundstage, emotion to spare – this one’s got it all. A true reference. Power, indeed.

Originally recorded in 1962.
