180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - Sealed
Tacets tube-only recording technique, renowned for their crystal clarity and spaciousness, score another triumph here. In contrast to the contemplative, peaceful character of Beethovens Sixth Symphony, disharmony and contention was rife everywhere around it. Not only was the very first performance bungled and criticised by musical 'clairvoyants' of the day who saw their vision of a heroic musical titan fade away in the sensitive melodiousness of the music, but the never-ending question of whether this is programme music or absolute music was raised continuously. The interpretation is quite another matter, however. The Pastorale Symphony is a real challenge and test for every orchestra when it comes to producing a refined sound and finely graded changes of tempo. Here, Wojciech Rajski and his Polish Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra who have won international acclaim for their Beethoven recordings are in their element. With a succinct yet differentiated sound colouring in the strings in all registers, the ensemble treads lightly through the picturesque landscape, carefully weighs in each melodious figure, and produces crackling, sparkling tension through sensitive changes of tempo. In the Finale one can quite justly speak of an abundance of gorgeous sound, and one must certainly be thankful for the use of pure analogue technique that results in such wonderful sound in this studio recording.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
