George Enescu conducts his Dixtuor & 2 Rhapsodies - Remington 1951 - now on HISTORICAL

Roumanian Rhapsody;  no.1, in A major, op.11    /   no.2, in D major, op.11      
L'Orchestre des Concerts Colonne  conducted by  Georges Enesco  
Dixtuor, for wind instruments, in D major, op.14   
Doucement mouvemente ~ Moderement ~ Allegrement, mais pas trop vif      
Wind Soloists of the Orchestre National de Francaise  conducted by  George Enescu   
Varese-Sarabande  VC 81042   1978 US LP. Rec: Paris, 1951.  Remington releases: (Rhapsodies) R-47 / R-52/ R-207. (Dixtuor) R-107.
The Rhapsodies are 'stereo' as they sound 'incorrect' replayed as mono.  "Dixtuor" has noticeable tape saturation / limited range of Dynamic contrast. The 1st Rhapsody sounds rather good - though 'artificial echo' was likely applied; also the levels are not too consistent.
