Fritz Reiner – Moussorgsky/Ravel: Pictures At An Exhibition

Audiophile Pressung

Winner of a Gruvy Award, chosen by AnalogPlanet’s editor, Michael Fremer, for vinyl records that are musically and sonically outstanding and are also well mastered and pressed. http://www.analogplanet.com/content/gruvy-awards

“These are the best vinyl releases of RCA LPs I’ve yet heard.” — Jonathan Valin, executive editor, The Absolute Sound

“Grade: A+. Once again, as good as I’ve heard this record sound. Gorgeous strings, superb bass, avalanche dynamics with that same tape-like ease, sensational inner detail. The authority of the CSO is really something on fortissimo tuttis, of which there are many in Pictures.” — Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound.com, June 11, 2013. http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/sneak-preview-acoustic-sounds-rca-reissues/
