 Classic Interpretatons May 24, 2014 By Charles W. (Austin, TX) See All My Reviews "I am 73 years old and I remember these recordings from my teenage years. They were recoded in the 1950's and were considered remarkable recodings then and they are still remarkable in sound quality and performance. These recordings were released in the USA on the London FFRR label and were engineered and produced by Wilkerson and Olaf. They were London's answer to the excellent Mercury Living Presence series engineered and produced by the Herbert Fine and future wife Wilmer Cozart. They are all mono recordings, but the sound is wonderful. Wide ranging, full bodied, detailed and impressive in all respects. The performances of the symphony are as good or better than any I have listened. Collins was a Sibelius specialist and made few other recordings, but he certainly knew his Sibelius. The playing of The LSO is remarkable for it's virtuosity, dynamic contrasts and detail. I really like the symphonies, the shorter orchestral works not as much. Incidentally, the Karelia Suite is played by The Danish National Orchestra under Thomas Jensen and seems fine. All told an excellent re-issue, well worth the price." Report Abuse
