Great Sounding Classical Title from EMI!

180g Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original EMI Stereo Analogue Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios!

“Records that are financial bargains are either reissues of somewhat old material that are admirably played but in faded recorded sound or new records by artists whose names hold out little promise of an exciting performance. But when you are offered a new record of Scheherazade, played by the Philharmonia Orchestra and conducted by a conductor, Kletzki, who is very likely to do this sort of thing well, then you can hope for a cheap record that is a bargain in the best sense of the word. And that is what this record is.”

So began the GRAMOPHONE review for what was in 1960 a new budget label designed to compete with the emergence of record clubs offering cheap records by mail order. Unlike Decca’s Ace of Clubs, HMV Concert Classics offered mainstream repertoire, often newly recorded and in stereo.

In the original December 1960 review of the stereo release Thomas Hearns of the GRAMOPHONE summed up his comments above with:

“...a thoroughly good performance and very well recorded...”

Recorded on April 12-14, 1960 at No. 1 Studio, Abbey Road, London. Produced by the legendary Victor Olof and engineered by Douglas Larter.

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.
