Richard Strauss Don Quixote
Nice clean recording. I Have the regular CD and had the LP. For the first time I can hear the Cello!
This is one of those transfers that amazes. Clarity of texture, depth of image, dynamic range—all combine to make this great recording (I remember its initial release in RCA’s Soria series) sound brand new. I hear details of orchestration that I don’t remember noticing before.
