KLEMPERER conducts Mozart, Volume 1

IMPORTANT: Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak CD shipments may take longer than usual to arrive.

"These are typical of the Klemperer approach to Mozart: serious performances, emphasising the power of the music ... Personally I find these performances most satisfying, ones that I want to hear again and again ... My own reaction was to find Klemperer's performances both of tremendous insight and completely compelling." - The Gramophone, 1957

Sometimes you just can't beat a well turned-out Mozart symphony, or perhaps three. And what better way to mark the 135th birthday this month of conductor Otto Klemperer than to offer just that - three fine symphony recordings of three fine Mozart symphonies?

TOSCANINI The Beethoven Symphonies Vol. 2: Nos 5-8

IMPORTANT: Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak CD shipments may take longer than usual to arrive.

"The fierce music [of the Fifth], it need hardly be said, receives a fierce performance ... The Pastoral ... has many virtues indeed. The brook may seem to some listeners to be flowing rather fast in the second movement; but if this is so it is surely preferable to stagnation ... The Seventh symphony suffers from a generally poor quality of sound, becoming harsh and distorted at the more powerful moments...because of the undoubtedly Olympian qualities of the performance..." - The Gramophone, 1958

In these new XR remasters sound quality has been dramatically improved throughout the studio and live NBC recordings that made up RCA's definitive Toscanini Beethoven Symphony releases of the 1950s. Essential!

LÉNER QUARTET Beethoven Quartets, Vol. 1: The Early Quartets

IMPORTANT: Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak CD shipments may take longer than usual to arrive. Shipments to most major customer countries are available, though this is subject to change out of our control at any time. We will contact you if we are unable to ship your CDs.

"I think I shall recommend for a beginning the Second in E minor to be followed by the First in F, and lastly by the Third in C rnajor. I recommend the Léner versions of all three published by Columbia" - The Gramophone, July 1927

The Léner Quartet, drawn from the Budapest Opera Orchestra after the Great War, was arguably the greatest of the inter-war string quartets, and the first to record the complete Beethoven String Quartets, which this new series will bring you across three volumes. With their highly Romantic style, this is a very different Beethoven to modern ears - and quite a magical one. We begin with the six early quartets, in superb new transfers by Mark Obert-Thorn.

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
