Recorded at Kingsway Hall and engineered by Kenneth Wilkinson, this record couples Moussorgsky's "Pictures At An Exhibition" with "Night On Bare Mountain". It has long been considered among the greatest sounding records ever made. Perhaps most stunning about "Power Of The Orchestra" are the effortless dynamics, which have been reviewed and raved about ever since the first RCA shaded dog. From the teeny, tiny, itsy, bitsy gentle plucks of strings to the WHAM!! CRASH!! SLAM!! of a full orchestra without a bit of notice. It's heart-stopping, jump-out-of-your-seat-type dynamics.
