Stereo from the years (1955-9) when Abbey Road sounded like the barn it rarely does now, the remastering here restoring the missing high frequencies of the previous transfer (1/89 – nla), tightening and extending the bass, and thus affording a wonderfully clear window on the high quota of magic (and occasional period quaintness) in Beecham’s way, especially the ‘humming’ haze he conjures from his muted strings. The Peer Gynt selection adds two numbers to the eight familiar from the Suites, with soloists and chorus singing in German. '
