The original pressed CD sound much better. What is the problem with this release from HDTT
Here's the surprise. Everyone knows the Alwyn 1812 - it's not a bad reading, but the sound is indifferent. But no-one knows the partnering Viviso reading of Francesca Da Rimini. In fact, it's superb, and the sound is equally fine! Just goes to show, collecting classical music for 40 years, and STILL no-one on this bus knows squat!
One of the best version of Tchaikowsky's 1812 overture
This is oldest stereo record which I have as vinyl and now quite well digitized. My version was ordered as FLAC and I made a comparison to the original vinyl version by Telefunken Decca 1958. Of course the old record is full of crackles, but it still has very good high frequency sound, which I believe is somewhat reduced in the digitized version. This is my subjective opinion and I didn't had a A-B test possibility. Anyhow I am happy with the new completely noiseless version which I can recommend to fans of 1812 overture. Especially the mild cannon shots makes the listening as a pleasure, compared to the famous version from Telarc
