KHCD-2012-051DL (MONO) - Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker: Suite, Op. 71a; Sleeping Beauty: Ballet Music, Op. 66 - Philadelphia Orchestra/Eugene Ormandy - Many of the best recordings Columbia produced was during the Golden Age of the LP, when mono sound reigned. Largely ignored now, the Columbia monos are an untapped source for some of the most satisfying interpretations of the classics. Ormandy's Tchaikovsky recordings from the early 50s often are superior to his later stereo retapings, as evidenced here with these two standards of the ballet repertoire. Recorded in 1952 in fine mono sound, this is a very satisfying collection of familiar music, in engaging interpretations.
