“Analogue Productions’ reissue of the RCA Living Stereo titles continues apace with one of the great masterpieces of the twentieth century – Béla Bartók’s Concerto For Orchestra with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Fritz Reiner. … (it) is is an audiophile’s dream recording. It has string tone to die for, a soundstage that fills your living room, and exhibits startling dynamics. … if you pass on this issue, you will miss out on what is the best-sounding pressing of this LP. In combination with great remastering, pressing on whisper quiet vinyl, and packaging in a first-class record sleeve, this is a bargain.” Recording = 10/10; Music = 10/10 – Dennis D. Davis, Hi-Fi +, Issue 121
