Massenet: "Le Cid" Ballet Suite; Rimsky-Korsakov: "Tsar Saltan" Suite - Netherland Philharmonic Orchestra/Henk Spruit
GSC006DL (MONO) - Massenet: "Le Cid" Ballet Suite; Rimsky-Korsakov: "Tsar Saltan" Suite - Netherland Philharmonic Orchestra/Henk Spruit - Concert Hall Society recordings often used pickup orchestras with personnel taken from various Dutch radio orchestras, naming them the "Concert Hall Symphony Orchestra" or, in this case the "Netherlands Philharmonic" (no relation to the Netherlands Philharmonic, formed in 1985 when the Amsterdam Philharmonic, Utrecht Symphony, and the Amsterdam Chamber Orchestra joined forces). In any event, the present disc is a fine mono recording of two well-know orchestral suites. A few reverb tails were inexpertly shorn (typical on this label), and have been restored. Thanks to John Whitmore for transcribing the LP.
