Bizet - L'Arlesienne And Carmen - Karajan - Philharmonia Orchestra on 180g Import LP

Cut from the Original Analogue EMI Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios & Pressed at the Vinyl Factory!

This Hi-Q Records release finds Herbert von Karajan conducting the Philharmonia Orchestra on a performance of Bizet's L’Arlesienne Suite No. 1 & 2 and the Carmen Suite, originally recorded on January 14-16, 1958 at the Kingsway Hall, London, produced by the legendary Walter Legge and engineered by Douglas Larter. 

This 180g vinyl offering was 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. 

Although associated mainly with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Herbert von Karajan was effectively (though never officially) the chief conductor of the Philharmonia Orchestra (which EMI producer Walter Legge had founded in 1945) from 1948 to 1954 and built the orchestra into one of the finest in the world. Although Karajan signed to Deutsche Grammophon in 1959, he would return to EMI in future years for occasional projects (like the Beethoven Triple Concerto and Mozart Symphonies).

"This Karajan performance is in...the highest class...Karajan gets beautiful and brilliant performances, superb playing from the Philharmonia and a first-rate recording..." - original 1959 Gramophone review
