Outstanding performances, key musical history,

This review is from: Mercury Living Presence (Decca box set) (Audio CD)
You must decide for yourself whether you like the Mercury sound - rightly praised as one of the pinnacles of analog recording in the mid-20th century. What is not in doubt is that these performances constitute a precious legacy. All the recordings, made in the mid-1950s to mid-1960s, reveal great musicians whose first aim was to be true to the music. Whether you are a music lover or a musician (or both!), you will find performances that give great pleasure and illuminate an important era of post-war music making. A super bargain.
