This classic live recording from 1952 is heard in field stereo for the first time. Although very popular in its early years, recordings of The Organ Symphony were nearly impossible to find. The symphony, scored for a large orchestra, two pianos, and pipe organ was written for human ears, not microphones. The present recording represents one of the earliest attempts to capture it. Although not completely successful in picking up the organ in detail, it is a remarkable effort, especially when considered as a live broadcast at the infancy of high fidelity sound. Toscanini's interpretation is very solid and well worth hearing. The first fully successful effort to record this symphony would come four years later, when Charles Munch and the BTO dazzled collectors with the Red Seal "Hi Fi Spectacular", (The most spectacular thing of all is Munch's brilliant rendering of the work.) Arturo Toscanini's performance here with the NBC Orchestra does not disappoint, either. The master tape has picked up some dropouts over the years, but the overall sound quality is excellent. Although it would have been possible to remix the organ into the recording for greater detail, the decision was to be faithful to the original recording as it truly is. What is Field Stereo? Close your eyes. Can you see the orchestra in the space in front of you? You're listening to field stereo RS3D, which uses the physics of the original recording microphone to recapture the moment, no matter how far back in time that is. There is no reverb or convolution, everything you hear is real acoustics. This is what the microphones actually picked up. This recording was mastered at 48khz/32 bit digital audio from 6 tracks using the RS3D Type I field stereo process.

This historic recording from 1939 has been cleaned to the hall acoustics and is heard in stereo sound for the first time. Arturo Toscanini's first American recordings of the Beethoven symphonies are significant for a number of reasons: they represent the Italian Maestro at the height of his career, and capture the moment in history when his rise in American culture was meteoric. These are the recordings that made his Beethoven the stuff of musical legend. Only two years had passed since the NBC Symphony had been organized as his own orchestra; a distinction rarely afforded to any conductor. On the radio he had become a superstar. This is the chance to hear his interpretations at the point when he was a mature, but still energetic, performer. The present recording is of very good quality, but the studio used at this time was somewhat problematic, being among the driest recording spaces ever used. RCA/NBC would try to address this in future years, but eventually built him a new studio, 8H, in Radio City. Although the issue of the studio's absorbancy could not be addressed in the 1930s, 21st century technology allows us to capture the room acoustics and restore them into the mix. This not only brings ambience into the recording, but also increases high frequency performance. The fidelity is linear out to 16 khz and very listenable. RCA would eventually discover that even 8H was too dry for recording on tape and addressed the issue with chambered reverb. The present mastering does not follow their example here, as the ceiling of the earlier hall was actually pretty active and produced some nice, long reverb naturally all the way to the back wall, where it stands and dies abruptly by design. This actually shunted the room acoustics away from the microphone and is the reason why the 78s sounded almost like they were recorded in a shower stall. As we can now hear, the actual studio sound resembled a sonically controlled rehearsal hall, and would have lent itself well to stereo recording. The present recording was mastered at 48khz/32-bit from 4 tracks using the RS3D Type I formula. A LITTLE FACTOID ON MONO RECORDING Microphones have always recorded in 3D. Since 1926 microphone capsules and ribbons have been sensitive on all 3 axis's of acoustics: near and far, left and right, even up and down! Even better, there is nothing a microphone does which destroys or renders this information as useless. They simply pass it on to the recording system, where it is preserved. It is only the limitation of a single track which limits this reproduction, even though it is there. The principles of acoustics in a single channel tell us that harmonic information will cancel or load when combined together, which results in duller sound or loss of acoustics. This is why stereo was developed in the first place. RS3D uses the microphone capsule in a 3-dimensional way, employing the left and right side of the collecting element in the same way in which it captured the space in front of it. This is also the same principle used in present day mid-side stereo recording. The present recording is an extreme example of the benefits of using the process. The mono original is dull and has no ambience. When the signal is unloaded three dimensionally we can actually hear the room as the musicians did at the time. What is Field Stereo? Close your eyes. Can you see the orchestra in the space in front of you? You're listening to field stereo RS3D, which uses the physics of the original recording microphone to recapture the moment, no matter how far back in time that is. There is no reverb or convolution, everything you hear is real acoustics. This is what the microphones actually picked up.

Dino Borgioli (1891-1960) was an Italian lyric tenor who enjoyed an international career during the period between the two world wars. Born in Florence, he discovered his voice at an early age but initially had no intention of becoming a singer. Borgioli’s parents decided that he should pursue a career as a lawyer. Honoring their wishes, the young man dutifully enrolled in law school. However, Borgioli had always garnered a great deal of attention for his singing and decided to abandon the courtroom for a career on the opera stage. He left school and, quite literally, ran away from home to pursue vocal studies with celebrated teacher Eugenio Giacchetti. Giacchetti, who managed to reconcile his pupil with his worried parents, took charge of the young man’s training and guided him toward a successful singing career. Following an intense period of study, Borgioli made his operatic debut as Arturo in I Puritani at Milan’s Teatro Corso in 1914. Owing to the success of this debut, Borgioli was sought by other theaters, including Milan’s Teatro dal Verme, the Costanzi in Rome and the San Carlo in Naples, before arriving at La Scala in 1918. The role for his La Scala debut was Ernesto in Don Pasquale. The conductor was Arturo Toscanini, who nurtured the young singer, giving him encouragement and advice. Borgioli’s international career was soon in full swing, with appearances in Madrid, Barcelona, Lisbon, Monte Carlo, Paris, Brussels, Zurich, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Buenos Aires, Los Angeles and Chicago. He performed with Nellie Melba’s opera tour of Australia in 1924 and was a particular favorite in London, where he made his Covent Garden debut in 1925 as Edgardo in Lucia di Lammermoor. His North American debut came about in 1932 when he sang Cavaradossi to Claudia Muzio’s Tosca at the opening of San Francisco’s War Memorial Opera House. This much heralded event was also broadcast over the airwaves to the homes of delighted opera fans. Borgioli couldn’t manage to gain a foothold with New York audiences, though, and his one and only season at the Metropolitan was over in less than a month. His debut as Rodolfo in La Bohème on New Year’s Eve, 1934, failed to impress critics. Borgioli sang exactly three performances of three roles…des Grieux in Manon, Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni and the aforementioned Rodolfo…before bidding farewell to the Met in a January 27, 1935 concert. Cutting his losses, Borgioli returned to Europe where he made a favorable impression in Salzburg (having already debuted there in 1931). Here, he sang Ottavio and Fenton in Falstaff under the baton of his old colleague Toscanini. Borgioli was also invited to Glyndebourne in 1937, where he spent the next two seasons. He settled in London in 1939 and when war broke out in Europe, he decided to abandon the operatic stage. Borgioli did, however, continue to perform in concert and oratorio for the next decade and proved to be quite an effective recitalist. The veteran tenor also established himself as a teacher of the first rank and spent the next two decades coaching young singers. Borgioli also was appointed vocal director of the New Opera Company of London in 1949. During the 1950s, he returned to his native Florence where he died in 1960 at the age of 69. Dino Borgioli remains a sadly underrated artist. Although he possessed a somewhat light grained instrument, he was a consummate musical artist, eloquent interpreter and a very fine actor. His repertoire encompassed a variety of roles including Elvino in La Sonnambula, Nemorino in L’Elisir d’Amore, Fernando in La Favorita, Ramiro in La Cenerentola, Dmitri in Boris Godunov, Alfredo in La Traviata, The Duke in Rigoletto, and the title roles in L’Amico Fritz and Faust. Borgioli’s recorded legacy is impressive, with dozens of discs (including complete recordings of Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Rigoletto) made for Columbia between 1922 and 1935. Here, Borgioli sings "Je crois entendre encore" (or "Mi par d'udir ancora" in Italian) from Bizet's opera The Pearl Fishers. This recording was made in Milan for Columbia Records in 1925.
