San Antonio Symphony Orchestra
Victor Alessandro, conductor

Recorded November, 1967 in the Municipal Auditorium, San Antonio TX

Recording Director: Harold Lawrence
Chief Engineer & Technical Supervisor: Robert Eberenz
DSD Transfer and 3-to-2 Mix: Andrew Wedman

Original recordings made with three Schoeps M201 omni-directional microphones plus a fourth Schoeps M201 for the guitarists. Recorded on Ampex 300 3-track recorders at 15 inches per second. First-generation 3-track tapes were transferred to produce this high-definition download.

On this breathtaking masterpiece, Los Romeros are accompanied by acclaimed conductor Victor Alessandro who steers the San Antonio Symphony Orchestra with transparent ease. The album’s focal point arrives with the delivery of Vivaldi’s Guitar Concertos, a stellar showcase of guitar playing married with an exuberant orchestra. Beautifully engineered, the colorful work also includes one of the finest performances of the Concierto de Aranjuez ever. Every dynamic nuance is captured with immaculate sonic clarity.

These 1967 sessions were the last recordings made by the original Mercury Living Presence team.
