VAN BEINUM conducts Bruckner

Eduard van Beinum's 1956 recording of Bruckner's Symphony No. 9 is one of the all-time classics. Recorded with the Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam it received an unusually limited initial release, but its stature has only grown over the years.

This new Ambient Stereo XR remastering lifts this masterpiece into a different sonic league, unleashing the full, sparkling glory of the orchestra as never heard before. Truly a magnificent performance, it now has the sound it's needed for nearly 70 years!

MOZART PROMOTION: From 3pm Paris time (2pm GMT, 9am EST), Friday 27 January, and for exactly 7 days until the same time Friday 3 February, get 10% off all our recordings of music by Mozart as we mark his 267th birthday this week.

SZIGETI European Columbia Recordings

"Pristine again triumphs with its fine remastering of the European Columbia recordings by violinist Joseph Szigeti. The recordings in this set date from Szigeti’s best years, 1927–37, and they preserve the work of a probing musician who in that period had technical skills to match." - Fanfare Wants List, 2021, on Vol. 1

This third volume of our critically-acclaimed Szigeti series brings you recordings of violin concertos by Brahms and Mendelssohn, the third Brahms Violin Sonata, plus numerous shorter works by a variety of composers, recorded with a star-studded list of conductors and accompanists, including Sir Thomas Beecham and Egon Petri!

"Though widely considered the master of the Romantic and early 20th Century musical idioms, Horenstein reveals his idiosyncratic, effective approach to the Classical masters, Haydn and Mozart ... a performance of vital, defined character" - Audiophile Audition on Volume 1

Flagstad pours it on—the quality of her voice and her stamina are remarkable

This “Eroica” is one of Klemperer’s great statements of the work
