Pro-Ject Audio Systems is very proud to celebrate Zubin Mehta's 80th birthday. Together with Universal Music (Decca) Pro-Ject Audio Systems proudly presents this iconic Zubin Mehta album in cooperation with The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Pro-Ject Audio Systems!
On 29th April 2016, Zubin Mehta celebrated his 80th birthday in the beautiful Brahms-hall in the Viennese Musikverein. Mrs Lichtenegger in representation of Heinz Lichtenegger (he was absent in New York) was handing over Zubin Mehtas birthday present: A limited edition vinyl record and the matching turntable Debut Carbon Esprit SB.
This record is a must-have for music fans of the analogue era back on heavy-weight double vinyl. Presented with original artwork, this recording has been carefully mastered from the original Decca analogue tapes at Abbey Road Studios. It is available with original gatefold cover as strictly limited edition exclusively for Pro-Ject Audio Systems (only 2000 copies worldwide).
This recording from 1975 has everything you could possibly ask for. Mehta's perfect tempo, great signing by Contrubas, Ludwig and the Vienna Staatsopernchor. The Vienna Philharmonic, particularly the brass, play just like the virtuoso ensemble that they are. Go and get it ASAP.
