At Loud & Clear Edinburgh, we are very excited to announce the launch of Classic Album Sundays Jazz & Classical on Sunday, 19 May.

John Dunkerley, multi Grammy award winning recording engineer, will introduce this session which will feature two Stravinsky works that changed the course of 20th century composition:

The Firebird – Antal Dorati, Orchestra: LSO: Mercury Living Presence SR90266 1960

The Rite of Spring – Georg Solti: Orchestra: Chicago Symphony: Decca SXL 6691 1974

Join us from 12pm for some refreshments and get in the mood by listening to some of the music influenced by these works.

At 2pm, the lights go down, the volume goes up and we will start with “The Firebird” on a VPI Classic 3 turntable with Lyra Kleos cartridge, MOON 810LP phono amp, 850P line pre-amp and 880M mono power amps, and the Focal Scala Utopia loudspeakers. All cables and connectors from Studio Connections and Nordost.

Classic Album Sundays – A Communal and Audiophile Listening Experience

The concept is to enable people to experience music as close as possible to the way the artist intended, to treat music as a precious commodity and a classic album as a work of art which should be appreciated in its entirety. Classic Album Sundays’ use audiophile hi-fi equipment to ensure an awe inspiring listening experience. Visitors are invited to switch off their phones and refrain from unnecessary conversation: just sit back, listen and immerse themselves in the experience.
