Gaîté Parisienne (literally, "Parisian Gaiety") is a one act ballet by Jacques Offenbach (1819-1880).

This release is considered by some to be the best RCA recording of all! Recorded in June 1954 in Boston Symphony Hall, Arthur Fiedler conducts the Boston Pops Orchestra.

Fiedler's performance of Offenbach's Gaîté Parisienne combines delightfully lyrical music with spectacular sonics to create an unforgettable listening experience. The fabled acoustics of Boston's Symphony hall and the magnificent tonal hues of the Boston Pops are on full display on this fanciful and festive recording.

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

This Analogue Productions LP was remastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head and was pressed on 200-gram virgin vinyl at Quality Record Pressings.
