Review:

I picked this LP up at a yard sale this past summer for the total sum of $1. It was among a large collection of classical LP's that looked to be in Mint to Near Mint condition. I think overall it's a very nice disk. If you are a fan of classical music this is one that I am sure you would appreciate. Some of the most famous classical works are presented quite nicely.

As for audio quality I would give it a very strong 4 out of 5. The clarity is quite good but the dynamics are rather outstanding. It also has a nice wide soundstage so on some of the pieces you really feel like your sitting at the theater.

Overall good LP. If you are a fan of Tchaikovsky or can score the disk at a low price I recommend it.
