Beethoven Symphonies-10 LP Box Set, Bonus 45 rpm Disk, Clarity Vinyl
December 28, 2009
Listed in Classical
The Everest Recordings of the entire Beethoven cycle with Krips conducting the LSO are considered by many music critics to be utterly superb. Using the now famous
35 MM recording decks at Walthamstow Assembly Hall in 1959, Bert Whyte and team Everest captured in amazing detail, all the nuance and complexity of the
Beethoven symphonies. Using the original 35MM tapes to do the transfers reveals how truly wonderful both the performances and the recordings compare with other
efforts by major labels of the same era. The LP set includes all nine symphonies spread over 10 discs and includes a bonus 45 rpm disc of the Egmont Overture
The LP's were mastered and cut on an ALL TUBE cutting system at the hands of Bernie "The Wizard" Grundman assisted by Len Horowitz
running the 35MM tape machine. All LP's are on Clarity 200g Super Vinyl Profile pressings to insure maximum playback fidelity. The discs come in a beautiful box that includes the original
art from the extremely rare boxed set from Everest along with a XX page reproduction of the original deluxe edition booklet. This is an absolute must for serious Beethoven lovers!
