"What a terrific item. Eloquence Australia should be congratulated wholeheartedly, not only for creating an Ansermet series but for delivering it with a compelling and outstanding programming of works, and in superb, remastered sound.
Some of these recordings are from 1954, which means they are in "pioneer" Stereo, yet everything sounds as recorded yesterday (or better!) You can hear all details of orchestration (important here) and the nuances of the conducting; which is almost perfect.
Some criticize the fact that the Suisse Romande was a second rate orchestra, but that becomes unimportant when the performances and the sound are this magical."
