Recorded on Westrex 3-track 35mm magnetic film recorders (Schumann & Lalo) and Ampex 300 3-track half-inch tape recorders at 15 inches per second (Saint-Saens). First-generation tapes were transferred to produce this high-definition download.

On this legendary recording, acclaimed cellist Janos Starker achieves arguably the best performance of these classic concertos. His delivery is both focused and alluring – presented with the pristine sonic depth associated with Mercury Living Presence’s sound. A vital addition to any music-lover’s library.
