Product Description

Through the decade following 1953, RCA Victor made a wondrous and substantial body of recordings which have come to be identified with their early stereo release label, Living Stereo. At the beginning of the widespread adoption of stereo audio in the home, Living Stereo offered a widely available range of quality music and performances in high quality sound.

An impressive amount of these records offer music, performances and audio quality which are still top choices and in many cases, still definitive! In its recording philosophies, Living Stereo influenced many of the recordings made since. They were significant in terms of music and sound quality and represent an important part of audiophile history.

On October 6, 1953, RCA held experimental stereophonic sessions in New York's Manhattan Center with Leopold Stokowski conducting a group of New York musicians in performances of Enesco's Roumanian Rhapsody No. 1 and the waltz from Tchaikovsky's opera Eugene Onegin. There were additional stereo tests in December, again in the Manhattan Center, this time with Pierre Monteux conducting members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

In February 1954, RCA made its first commercial stereophonic recordings, taping the Boston Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Charles Munch, in a performance of The Damnation of Faust by Hector Berlioz. This began a practice of simultaneously recording orchestras with both stereophonic and monaural equipment. Other early stereo recordings were made by Toscanini and Guido Cantelli respectively, with the NBC Symphony Orchestra; the Boston Pops Orchestra under Arthur Fiedler; and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Fritz Reiner.

Initially, RCA used RT-21 quarter-inch tape recorders (which ran at 30 inches per second), wired to mono mixers, with Neumann U-47 cardioid and M-49/50 omnidirectional microphones. Then they switched to an Ampex 300-3 one-half inch machine, running at 15 inches per second (which was later increased to 30 inches per second). These recordings were initially issued in 1955 on special stereophonic reel-to-reel tapes and then, beginning in 1958, on vinyl LPs with the logo ‘Living Stereo’.

RCA Sony Classics are renowned for the excellent quality of their box sets. They have produced Toscanini the complete RCA recordings, Fritz Reiner Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Colin Davis and Living Stereo Vol 1 Box sets,now Living Stereo Vol 2. The box is made of tough cardboard, with the CD numbers, Composer, music to be played, soloist and conductor on two sides. The lid can be taken off where you can deposit the CDs you wish to play. Inside the box is another box. Then rubber is placed down one side, the back and floor. You place the booklet on the other side. So as you see, the CDs are well protected. The sleeves have the original picture on the front, with composer, music to be played, conductor etc. The back; composer, music, track numbers, not forgetting the big CD number in white on a coloured background; such as Emerald Green and light lemon yellow, also on the CD. The CD has the CD number and below, composer, music and artists, conductor and orchestra. The 60 CDs are devided into 6 colour codes of 10CDs. You cannot get lost. (see my reviews below).

On the top of the box covered with plastic wrapping is the statement, "Legendary recordings"; many are, and "State of the Art sound". You will not find the following printed anywhere in the box. My Research shows the following: Remastered from the original analogue tapes using 24 bit/96 kHz technology. A few are taken from the living stereo SACD remasterings, but are not quite the same. Nearly all the CDs are stereo, but a number are digital remastered. I hope this information helps you.

The booklet only in English, is highly informative as was Vol 1, for it gives details of the composers lives, articles that they wrote,and the music is explained; also the lives of the conductors and soloists.

First: those reviewers who complain about short measure on these cds have a fair point. Only 1 is longer than 60 minutes (Beethoven 9th) (around the minimum these days) and 3 are shorter than 30 minutes which was short even by lp standards. However having paid only £48 even if this set had been reduced to 40 decently filled cds it would have been good vaue for money. And sometimes it is nice to have just one work on a cd instead of being tempted to listen to an extra unwanted item.
Second: this box is not as bristling with brilliant performances as the first one was: there were many discs in that one which were arguably the best ever recorded performances. Generally the cds in this box are not as essential listening. However it still deserves 5 stars: the notes are excellent. In many bargain boxes these days there are no notes at all, or very skimpy ones translated into several languages so that what looks like a thickish book only has a couple of pages of English. And the notes are almost all outstandingly written by such writers as Neville Cardus, Richard Mohr, George Marek, Julian Bream, Alberto Moravia and Thurston Dart. The several complete operas do not include libretti but do include quite detailed synopses.
As for the music making: it is never less than interesting: others have mentioned their favourites: the final three Tchaikowsky symphonies conducted by Pierre Monteux are brilliant, with superb orchestral playing. The performance of Verdi Requiem has already become something of a favourite: Birgit Nilsson's floated top note in the libera me is the purest I have ever heard on disc or live, and not only does she soar effortlessly over everyone, in the declaimed lower sections her diction is clear, forthright and intense.

Following on from the excellent Volume 1, this box set, whilst perhaps not quite as enticing as the first, contains some real gems from the early stereo era. Presentation is excellent, CD covers replicating the original record sleeves. Original notes are also included in a substantial booklet. I paid less than £50 for the set, but whatever you pay, it's an absolute bargain!

Sony's engineers have performed technical miracles to produce 60 discs of such amazing quality, transparency and clarity from 50 to 60 years ago. There are some small issues but these are small. To think that these are only about £1 per disc at the time of my purchase, makes them superb value.

Each individual performance has been optimised to extract the most technically while remaining true to the original recording. IMHO this set is better in every respect than vol 1 which was impressive in itself when released. Vol 2 shows to me that there have been improvements in restorative technologies used by the engineers.

As other have pointed out, there are many treasures here. Also, as others have also pointed out, there are many that are available as singles or as parts of other collections (such as Reiner's Strauss and the Cliburn concerto box). There are also short playing times. I would also have preferred original jackets. But if you can find, say, 5 or 6 discs out of the 60 that you don't have then to buy these as singles would equal the price of this set so you're ahead.

I am gradually getting through this great Living Stereo Box Set Vol 2. The sound quality is excellent as usual, and one of the many highlights for me is the complete Tosca with Zinka Milanov and Jussi Björling.

DISC 34 Jacket shows Symphony No 4 on the front, and Symphony no 8 on the back.
Could someone please confirm that this beautiful recording of the Dvorak Symphony No 8, is by the The Boston Symphony Orchestra - Charles Munch, which the booklet also confirms?
I have searched the internet for information without success.

DISC 18 is Alexander Nevsky
NOT Schubert: Death and the Maiden - The Juilliard String Quartet, as stated above in the Amazon Product Description, and is also not on this set.

There is no hesitation in recommending these beautifully presented, original artwork jackets and great sounding recordings.
