Brahms: Symphony No. 3 in F, Op. 90; Symphony No. 4 in e minor, Op. 98 - William Steinberg/Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
KHCD-2010-022DL (STEREO Reel Tape Masters) Brahms: Symphony No. 3 in F, Op. 90; Symphony No. 4 in e minor, Op. 98 - William Steinberg/Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra - Klassic Haus Restorations continues with the Steinberg/PSO legacy with two Brahms symphonies, recorded in 1962 (No. 3) and 1964 (No. 4). The Third symphony tape is an original Grand Award/Command Classics issue; the Fourth is issued on an Ampex/Command tape master. The 4th Symphony master has a bit more tape hiss (typical of Ampex-mastered tapes of the era), but the hiss been tamed somewhat; the tape itself was new-in-the-box, never played until I mastered it! Admirable sound with sympathetic interpretations, another worthy addition to the catalogue!
