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

Conductor Paray leads the Detroit Symphony through the overtures of 19th Century Austrian composer Franz von Suppé and French composer Daniel François Esprit Auber. Both composers were master writers of comic opera, and these instrumental performances, captured with the Living Presence series’ unparalleled sound, make for a supremely enjoyable introduction to the composers’ work.
