Background -

Leinsdorf was one of the last of the old school Germanic conductors - a tough taskmaster, a superb technician and a link to a fast disappearing romantic tradition.

Produced, mastered and engineered by Doug Sax and Lincoln Mayorga.

Gold CD Title & Track Listing -

The Sheffield / Leinsdorf Sessions: Volume 1


  • Excerpts from the Ballet, Romeo and Juliet


  • Afternoon of a Faun


  • Forest Murmurs (from Siegfried)

The Gold CD is from the ultra-rare SHEFFIELD LAB series of audiophile GOLD CDs (LONG out of print).

  • Gold CD made in the USA
  • Gold CD issued in 1995
  • GOLD CD catalog # 10043-2-G
  • Sheffield's 20+ -> 16 Ultra Matrix Processing: This project features a breakthrough in CD sound quality. Sheffield's Ultra-Analog based 20-bit A/D converter is fed into an Apogee UV 22 encoder, allowing up to 15db of low level signal that is below the 16 bit noise floor to be encoded on CD. This dramatic increase in low level resolution represents a significant milestone in achieving the fine detail and ambiance retention characteristic of analog recording - the results are stunning!

The Gold CD, JEWEL CASE and INSERTS are all in MINT condition - the CD is actually FACTORY SEALED!!

This CD is an audiophile quality pressing (any collector of fine MFSL, half speeds, direct to discs, Japanese/UK pressings etc., can attest to the difference a quality pressing can make to an audio system).

Do not let this rarity slip by!
