About

Released 17 June 2022

Under the leadership of Paul Paray, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra quickly cultivated a brilliance of attack, precision of ensemble and moulded sonority. Their signature sound was ideally suited to the dynamic profile of Mercury Living Presence recordings, especially in stereo. This edition of their recordings, remastered from the original sources by Thomas Fine and Wilma Cozart Fine, chronicles the last five years of this partnership (1958–62). This original jackets collection is presented chronologically as when first issued.

“Paray’s readings are full of strength and dramatic intensity, yet every note is clear, crisp and correct.” High Fidelity
