Beethoven Concerto No. 4 In G Major - Gould - Bernstein - New York Philharmonic on 180g LP

180g Audiophile Vinyl Pressing from Impex Records

All-Analog Mastering by Kevin Gray!

So much has been said and written about Glenn Gould's Bach recordings that some classical music listeners may have overlooked his fabulous renditions of the Beethoven piano concertos. However, Impex Records is hoping to change this. Hearing Gould's magnificent pianism, along with the inspired conducting of Leonard Bernstein, recorded in the vast acoustical space of the Manhattan Center, they are certain you will find that Gould's Beethoven concertos have a rightful place alongside his celebrated Goldberg Variations.

With so many workaday renditions of the Beethoven concertos, audiophiles rightly tend to look for inspired performances; and every recording by Glenn Gould is certainly inspired. Gould is often erratic, but he was also daring, constantly exploring. His lyrical ebb-and-flow reading shines a new light on this well-loved work. A clash of two classical recording titans leaves a seminal reading of this grand Beethoven composition in its wake!

With all-analog mastering by Kevin Gray and Impex's usual attention to detail on all facets of production, this new 180g pressing is sure to make Gould and Bernstein's triumph here a favorite of audiophiles everywhere! 

"Today, Impex brings us a vinyl remaster as fresh, clear, and full-bodied as the day it was captured in 1961. Kevin Gray’s all-analog remaster of this six-eye gem turns a perfect triple Lutz into a quadruple Axel. Gray does not try to make an audiophile diva from an already fine recording, and the quiet, tick-free 180-gram vinyl really sticks the landing. If your collection is missing Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto, it lacks an essential piece of classical music. If it lacks Glenn Gould’s version, you are missing a quintessential performance." -  Tim Acreamann, The Audio Beat, December 2012
