Rare and Unreleased Horenstein

"I'm very excited about this new CD from Pristine, the 20th in the series, that features beautifully restored live recordings of 20th century works not normally associated with Horenstein.

The 9-minute 'Sinfonia Partita' (1952) by Marcel Mihalovici, here receiving its French première, is the first and only recording of this powerful neoclassic piece for string orchestra.

The other two works on this CD, Bartók's 'Concerto for Orchestra' and Stravinsky's 'Symphony in Three Movements', have appeared once before but this is their first publication in stereo, and the improvement in clarity and impact is remarkable.

A must-have disc for all admirers of Horenstein's art."

Melchior and Flagstad: Tristan und Isolde

In their final live radio broadcast performance together, direct from the stage of the Metropolitan Opera in February 1941, Lauritz Melchior and Kirsten Flagstad are perhaps the finest Tristan and Isolde ever captured in a sound recording.

The performance, brilliantly conducted by Erich Leinsdorf is, despite the Met's traditional cuts, one of the all-time greats. And thanks to the discovery of a new, super high quality source, it can be heard and enjoyed as never before.

Painstakingly restored and XR-remastered for Pristine by Andrew Rose, who has breathed new life and vigour into this classic historic recording, prepare to be taken on a musical journey like no other: an essential addition to the collection of anyone who's ever loved the music of Wagner.

Jascha Spivakovsky Volume 6

"Each volume of our Jascha Spivakovsky series, "From Bach to Bloch" (and yes, we'll get to Bloch eventually!) adds another dimension to the slender but growing catalogue of Jascha's recordings, and this sixth outing is no exception. For the first time we find him playing works by the two Franz's, Schubert and Liszt - an Impromptu and a Hungarian Rhapsody respectively.

Elsewhere there are substantial works by J. S. Bach - the Italian ConcertoMozart and Schubert - a piano sonata each - and two shorter works from Chopin.

The Spivakovsky legend continues to build with each release and we're sure this one will do nothing but add to his growing reputation. Despite never recording commercially this collection of broadcast and private recordings offers a vital window on one of the great pianists of the twentieth century.

What the reviewers say

FURTWÄNGLER Wagner Ring Cycle: 4. Götterdämmerung (1950, La Scala) - PACO093

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

Fanfare magazine

KLEMPERER in Philadelphia, Vol. 1: Bach, Beethoven, Brahms (1962) - PASC465

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

Fanfare magazine

LEINSDORF Wagner: Die Walküre (1940, Met) - PACO125

Probably the most significant recording to come along since the recent Wagner bicentennial

The Washington Post

TOSCANINI All-Verdi Concert (1943) - PACO106

Never have I heard the entire broadcast in such excellent sound ... one of the greatest of all Toscanini concerts
