Itzhak Perlman Plays Paganini & Sarasate 180g LP
180g Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original Analogue EMI Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios!
Probably the pre-eminent violinist of our time, Itzhak Perlman is known for his
brilliant technique, direct interpretation and precision. Perlman's recordings
include not only all standard violin repertoires but those of contemporary
composers. He has appeared with every major orchestra in the world, showcasing
his talent at music festivals, recitals, and concerts around the world.
Perlman was only 26 when he made these recordings for EMI but went on to have a
long association with the company, making over 70 recordings.
In the original 1972 review MH of the GRAMOPHONE wrote:
"...it is an exhilarating experience to hear Perlman in these still
hair-raisingly difficult works. The battle of technique, it seems, has been won
and left far behind, hut there is never any suggestion of undue facility, of
skating over the music's surface and robbing it of its real impact.... Similar
comments apply to Perlman's splendid account of the D major Concerto..."
Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with
the Neumann VMS80 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted
Studer A80 tape deck with additional playback head.
Pressed on 180g vinyl to audiophile standards.
Recorded in London’s Kingsway Hall on 9 & 10 August 1971.
Produced by the legendary Suvi Raj Grubb and engineered by Robert Gooch.
"For luxury of tone and visceral musicality, there is probably no more talented violinist in the world than Itzhak Perlman. Also no violinist more successful. Success at its worst, however, operates in inverse proportion: an ever-growing number of fans demanding to hear an ever-shrinking repertory of comforting favorites." - New York Times
