Mendelssohn & Bruch Violin Concertos 180g LP
180g Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original EMI Stereo Analogue 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 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– the withdrawn, yet eloquent simplicity of the slow movement followed by an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
Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS82 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional ‘advance’ playback head, making the cut a totally analogue process.
Pressed on 180g vinyl to audiophile standards using the original EMI presses by The Vinyl Factory in Hayes, England.
