Notes and Editorial Reviews

The highlight of this label is the quality of the transfers. Never have these wonderful performances ever sounded as good as they do here. Opus KURA's transfer engineer has managed to give the orchestral sound a bloom and dynamic range hitherto unimaginable. You can actually hear the differences between the French and Japanese pressings of these recordings. As you will read in the notes, the Opus KURA engineers listen to all pressings of particular performances, all sides, and compare them to get the best sound possible. The results are remarkable. It is like hearing these historically significant performances for the very first time. For the historical collector, Opus KURA releases will be very important. More Walter, Mengelberg and so Read more much more to come in the months ahead. Read less
