KHCD-2013-046FL (MONO) - Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 3 in D major, Op. 29 "Polish"(1956 Decca recording): Overture "1812", Op. 49 (1952 Decca recording) - London Philharmonic Orchestra/Sir Adrian Boult - The Symphony No. 3 was taped by Decca in both mono and stereo in 1956. The stereo version, while giving perhaps a wider soundstage perspective, tends to sound drier overall. I am quite fond of the mono Decca sound, which has a warmer bloom and has a better representation of Kingsway Hall. Boult's interpretation is quite engaging. It is coupled with the 1952 Decca recording of the "1812", decently and respectfully played by the LPO. Download includes CD artwork.
