Recorded in Orchestra Hall, Chicago

Producer: Richard Mohr
Recording Engineer: Lewis Layton
Mastering Engineer: Mark Donahue
Remastered from first-generation session tapes at Soundmirror Inc., Boston MA

Original sessions recorded to 3-track half-inch tape on an Ampex 300 tape machine running at 15 inches per second.

Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra perform Debussy’s La mer and Respighi’s Fountains of Rome and Pines of Rome. Two masters of orchestral tone painting draw dazzling pictures using the palette provided by Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. These showpieces sparkle as never before in pristine audiophile quality.

Both recordings were long-time favorites in the RCA Living Stereo LP catalog. This high-definition digital release is the first to come directly from the first-generation session tapes rather than second-generation "cutting masters." Fritz Reiner's superb control of his orchestra highlights the drama and dynamics of these works, all aptly captured by Living Stereo's recording team.
