RCA Living Stereo: the gold standard for top quality orchestral performance & sound!
Anatole Fistoulari was always a specialist in the interpretation of ballet music. He was also, a noted conductor of Tchaikovsky & the Russian School, as well as romantic & impressionistic French music.
Fistoulari’s RCA LP with the Paris Conservatoire Orchestra was a short LP (about 33 minutes) but the short sides helped to make it an audiophile’s delight even in its original incarnation. Very lively midrange with superbly coherent staging, top rank clarity & deep, powerful & well-defined bass. Recorded by renowned Decca audio master Kenneth Wilkinson.
