Great Sounding Classical Title from EMI!
180g Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original EMI Stereo Analogue Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios!
Otto Klemperer conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra for this recording of Nowak's 1953 edition of Bruckner's Fourth Symphony.
This is one of four LPs that EMI/Columbia released for Otto Klemperers 80th birthday in 1965. Bruckners Symphonies were relatively unknown to the record-buying public in the 1960s, when complete cycles, like Bernard Haitinks were still in the process of being recorded. Klemperer uses the Nowak edition of 1953, based on the 1886 revision of the score and gives an idiosyncratic interpretation, with outer movements faster than you would expect from this conductor, that nonetheless preserves the architecture of symphony, captured in vintage EMI/Kingsway Hall sound.
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.
