Product Description

This particularly remarkable release comprises recordings made in the pre-electric ‘acoustic’ era. It features recordings dating back as far as 1916 of charming orchestral works such as Sir Frederic Cowen’s The Butterfly’s Ball, Elgar’s Fringes of the Fleet recorded for HMV in 1917 and Holst’s Beni Mora – Oriental Suite recorded in 1924. Music aside, it is quite astonishing to hear how incredibly clear these vintage recordings sound in the twenty-first century, owing to Michael J. Dutton’s exquisite remastering.
