Living Stereo Collection: Volume 1 - Various Artists on Limited Edition 60 x CD Box Set

In the 1950s, RCA Victor made a substantial body of recordings which have come to be identified with their first stereo label, Living Stereo. At the beginning of the widespread adoption of stereo audio in the home, Living Stereo offered a wide range of music, performances and audio quality that are still considered to be the definitive recordings today.

The first commercial stereophonic recording was made by RCA in 1954 of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Charles Munch, performing The Damnation of Faust. This began the practice of simultaneously recording orchestras with both stereophonic and monaural equipment. Living Stereo influenced many classical recordings made since and represents an important part of audiophile history.

The Living Stereo Collection Volumes 1 and 2 feature legendary performances from great artists and orchestras including Vladimir Horowitz, Byron Janis, Arthur Rubinstein, Fritz Reiner, Erich Leinsdorf, Arthur Fiedler, Jascha Heifetz, Van Cliburn, Leontyne Price, Leopold Stokowski, Mario Lanza, Julian Bream, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Boston Pops Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra and many more.

The two box sets each contain 60 CDs all packaged in minisleeves with the original artwork, along with a perfect-bound book with track listings and original liner notes.
