Another fine Pfeiffer / Chase / Heiftez collaboration. Throw in Hendl conducting the Detroit Symphony on the Rozsa Violin Concerto and Izler conducting the RCAVVO on Benjamin’s Romantic Fantasy and you’ve got a winner. This is an original 3-track recording and that is what this LP reissue was mastered from. The result? Not to be missed!

“…I’d have to say that the usual stumbling blocks have been sidestepped. Great care has been taken to do the right things, starting with the way the decision to remaster these RCAs was made.” –Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound
