Reviews :

“When the tempo changes to presto, the piano’s arpeggios and scales are prominent enough to make their point without leaping out at you, just as the organ in the finale asserts its grandeur without overwhelming the orchestral palette…Even in a competitive market, this version has a distinct edge.” —Geoffrey Norris, Gramophone

“The experience is spectacular regardless of equipment. I’ve listened in a number of different ways already, and the overall effect is spine-tingling…I won’t spoil your listening with tiny details, but the closing pages are simply a joy…I am certainly making room on my shelf for this thrilling sonic and musical experience.” —Brian Wigman, ClassicalNet

Composed at his artistic peak, Camille Saint-Saëns said of his Symphony No. 3 “I gave everything to it I was able to give. What I have here accomplished, I will never achieve again.”

Reference Recordings is proud to present conductor Michael Stern’s interpretation of this great symphony, now on LP in addition to the previously-released compact disc (RR-136HDCD). The Kansas City Symphony’s performance is brilliantly captured by GRAMMY® award winners Keith O. Johnson (engineer) and David Frost (producer). Organist Jan Kraybill plays with power and mastery.

 

Half-speed mastering

In half-speed mastering, the whole process is slowed down to half of the original speed. A typical 33 1/3 rpm record is cut at 16 2/3 rpm. The source material is also slowed down (reducing the pitch in the process) meaning the final record will still sound normal when played back. Slowing the whole process down allows more time, which means the end result sounds better and is more efficient — allowing engineering to minimize the effects of inherent limitations within the vinyl format. The result is a more accurate and more open high-frequency response in the half speed vinyl when compared with a normal speed recording.
