    - Performance is ok but not the sound. Except for the french horn and trombones most of instruments sound too distant including the tympani.

    - This has been remastered, which means they used noise reduction and ruined the harmonics. There was an earlier issue on EMI, from the time when they weren't trying to filter out tape hiss, which sounds like the original LP, which was quite impressive.
    Good luck trying to find it, though. This is muffled by comparison, as are most re-issues made after 2000. Believe it or not, we had high frequency in the 20th century, even though you couldn't prove it with the stuff they're putting out now.

    From the Youtube Comments section of "Rimsky-Korsakov, Borodin - Scheherazade, Polovtsian Dances (reference recording: Sir Thomas Beecham)":

    - But they could never transfer the bass frequencies onto vinyl because the vibration of the 'needle' in the groove wrecked the tracking. So we NEVER heard these tapes properly until the era of digital. Don't listen to the nonsense from vinyl fans. They
    were just fishing for the music with a hook on a rod.
