Mendelssohn & Bruch Violin Concertos 180g LP
180g Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original Analogue EMI Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios!
This classic coupling of the Mendelssohn and Bruch Concertos was recorded when
Menuhin was in his early 40s and in his prime. The LP has been newly cut at
EMI’s Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo EMI Master Tapes.
The Mendelssohn was recorded at No. 1 Studio, Abbey Road in 1958 and the Bruch
dates from the earliest days of stereo (1956) recorded at London’s famous
Kingsway Hall venue.
Produced and engineered by the legendary Victor Olof and Christopher Parker
(Mendelssohn) and Lawrance Collingwood and Robert Arnold (Bruch).
The album features original album artwork and is pressed on 180g vinyl to
"The Mendelssohn is distinguished by any standards, coming up as fresh as paint
– the withdrawn, yet eloquent simplicity of the slow movement followed by an
unhurried finale that allows a real chamber music ensemble with the orchestra
(the original Philharmonia at its most distinguished)." - GRAMOPHONE
