Oistrakh, Rostropovich and Richter join the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Herbert von Karajan for a truly legendary recording event!
EMI waited many years to get these legendary artists together for this recording and the result was one of the greatest recordings this work has ever received.
Produced by Peter Andry and pressed on 180g Audiophile Vinyl.
This latest issue has been newly cut at EMI's Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo EMI Master tapes.
"Even in these days of star-studded casting on record, the line-up for this latest version of the Triple Concerto is nothing short of breathtaking. So breathtaking I was worried that my expectations would run ahead of all possible achievement. But not so. This is a marvelous performance that will clearly remain a classic for years to come." - Edward Greenfield, Gramophone, September 1970
Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS82 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional advance playback head, making the cut a totally analogue process.
Pressed on 180g vinyl to audiophile standards using the original EMI presses by The Vinyl Factory in Hayes, England.
