Product description

Most classical devotees know that Espana! features legendary Spanish conductor Ataulfo Argenta leading the London Symphony Orchestra in a program of so-called "Spanish" blockbusters. But, ironically, only one piece is penned by a Spanish composer (Granados, "Danza Espanola") while the others are by a Russian (Rimsky Korsakov, "Capriccio Espagnol"), German (Moszkowski, "5 Spanish Dances"), and Frenchman (Chabrier, "España"). The LP version was initially issued in the United States as one of the index recordings of London Records' vaunted "blueback" series, known for its demonstration-quality sound. This Hybrid SACD plays in both CD and SACD players, as well as all SACD-compatible DVD players. Recording: London, Kingsway Hall, January 1957; Geneva, Victoria Hall, May 1957 (tracks 13-15) Producers: Erik Smith; James Walker (tracks 13-15) Balance Engineers: Gordon Parry, Roy Wallace (tracks 13-15) Mastered by Willem Makee. 1.
