Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This disc, recorded as long ago as 1954 and 1956, is a total success as a remastering. The advantages are greater tonal warmth and depth of field and well as enhanced clarity. The previous version was notably good so this further improvement is quite remarkable.

The performances themselves are full of verve and considerable orchestral virtuosity. Fiedler extracts from his enthusiastic musicians playing of almost relentless energy and good humour. This is, of course what is written in the Offenbach particularly, but the Rossini can have more light and shade to give dynamic variety at the very least as other conductors have shown. However none can match Fiedler and his orchestra for all the virtues previously listed as above. Of the various recordings that I have owned in the past this is still the most rewarding by some distance. This is a short review because there is very little to add!

In summary therefore, I would suggest that this disc certainly deserves to be considered as a front runner in any list of recordings to be considered by anyone interested in the program. Also those wishing to upgrade their previous version may do so with confidence.

The sound on these recordings from 1954 is stunning -- most modern record companies could learn a thing or two about natural sound from this SACD

Very nice recording from the 1950s in stereo only on this living stereo S.A.C.D DISC a lively selection of music showing how good recordings can sound from this time. This was recorded in two channel only so is only in stereo but the sound is natural not like some remixing of later classical recordings highly recommended.

This is sold as a DSD disc. However, the recording was made in the 1950's, and so the reproduction is a perfect facsimilie of the sound of that time. If you love the characteristics of the old 78's and '50's technology, you'll love it. Personally, i think the sound is dreadful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Energetic Performances Beautifully Recorded 12 Mar. 2011
By David Bower - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I already have recordings of both of these works but have been so intrigued by RCA's significant efforts in remastering these older recordings I decided to add this one to my collection. This is one of their two channel efforts that use only the front left and front right main speakers.

The soundstage on the SACD version is impressively smooth and wide; I actually went up to the center speaker at one point just to make sure there was nothing being reproduced on the center channel and it was silent. There is unbroken orchestral sound from an area wider than the speakers; I call that a really great soundstage.

The music is performed crisply and cleanly with a detailed presence that places the listener front and center. The Boston Pops under Fiedler's direction offers a brisk, sparkling interpretation of both selections.

I was intrigued by the length of Fiedler's La boutique fantasque; the recorded length is 27:23 which is considerably shorter than other performances which can range from 42 to 47 minutes more or less. This is evidently a concert version which has omitted certain sections found in the complete ballet which usually runs something over 40 minutes.

In summary, my hat's off to the RCA engineers who had the foresight to record these excellent performances with such care. I'm particularly impressed with their interest in the three channel recordings which play back so well with the SACD medium. These have much better sound than one would expect from recordings made in 1954 and 1956.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic sound , great Offenbach 1 Jan. 2011
By Rod Parke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I used to sell this Offenbach record with the Boston Pops back in the fifties at the little record shop I worked at; it was a huge seller on LP and in mono only. The sound today on this SACD in stereo is simply phenomenal. Incredible punch and clarity with the trumpets sounding state of the art. It's as though you are listening directly to the original 30-inch-per-second tapes. And Arthur Fiedler's famous energy comes through with every note. The only weakness is the lack of the lower bass where tubas and bass drum comes through poorly.

The Rossini/Respighi is less satisfying, perhaps because I so love the London recording with Ansermet conducting. Here Fiedler doesn't make the most of the brilliant orchestration. The sound is excellent.
