180g Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original Analogue EMI Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios!
Probably the pre-eminent violinist of our time, Itzhak Perlman is known for his brilliant technique, direct interpretation and precision. Perlman’s recordings include not only all standard violin repertoires but those of contemporary composers. He has appeared with every major orchestra in the world, showcasing his talent at music festivals, recitals, and concerts around the world.
Perlman was only 26 when he made these recordings for EMI but went on to have a long association with the company, making more than 70 recordings.
A review of the original 1972 recording in the GRAMOPHONE stated:
“…it is an exhilarating experience to hear Perlman in these still hair-raisingly difficult works. The battle of technique, it seems, has been won and left far behind, hut there is never any suggestion of undue facility, of skating over the music’s surface and robbing it of its real impact…. Similar comments apply to Perlman’s splendid account of the D major Concerto…”
Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS80 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional playback head.
Pressed on 180-gram vinyl to audiophile standards.
Recorded in London’s Kingsway Hall on August 9 and 10, 1971.
