GOLDEN HIT SONGS OF A DECADE

The 1950´s will be regarded all over the world as decade of change and marriage of musical tastes. The effects of increased travel and exposures of people to new cultures and environment left a delightful indelible stamp on popular music everywhere. With such hits recordings as Patti Page´s Tennessee Waltz (American folk) - Volare (Italian) - Mack the Knife (German musical theatre) - Les Paul and Mary Ford´s Vaya Con Dios (Mexican) - Johnny Ray´s Cry (the blues) and a sprinkling of American ballads (Sinatra´s Young at Heart we witnessed a healthy and expansive musical appetite attracted to programs of the broadest cultural areas in history.

Such songs as Canadian Sunset, So Rare and Autumn Leaves gave evidence of a mature and poignant style of song writing that will influence composers in all fields of music for years to come.

Robert Lowden´s colorful orchestrating of these twelve wonderful songs in this album capture all the divergement and stimulating change of our popular music tastes in the 1950´s


The lush magnificence and hi-fidelity depth of "101 Strings" is due to a combination of factors. First in importance, is the concept of scoring for the strings. The necessity of using 101 strings instruments is to utilize various harmonies and voicings and not weaken the dynamic or quality of any one line when playing counter lines. This is particularly importance with the violins and violas, and creates a wonderful rich channel separation for hi-fidelity recording. The listener will note that a times the melody line is in full presence and possibly a full and lovely conter line is being played without sacrificing the full dynamic value of either. Secondly, the original performances have been records under the most exacting audio engineering standards with specially designed microphones with characteristics to compensate for any possible distortion from the tremendous bass frequency response in cello and string bass. Third, and of extreme importance, are the players themselves. They represent the finest musicians in Europe today. There are, in fact, eleven concertmeisters in the first chairs.

This album was recorded under direction of D. L. Miller.

Manufactured By Miller International Co., Runnemede, N. J., U. S. A.

The DYNA-COUSTIC process is the most advanced principle of recording in the audio sciences. By pre-determinging levels and optimum frequency responses of each section of the orchestra, microphones are placed and set at a fixed volume during the performance.
The result is a natural dynamic response from the hall or studio thereby retaining the pure acoustical resonances heard at actual performance rather than an electronic audio illusion that is emotionally disappointing in normal recording.
