Notes

Recording Producers : Walter Legge & Fritz Ganss
Recording Engineer : Horst Lindner

In 1955 Herbert von Karajan was appointed music director for life of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. However, Karajan continued his close association with the Philharmonia Orchestra during the rest of the 1950s and with the orchestra’s founder and legendary EMI Producer, Walter Legge. EMI remained Karajan’s record company until 1959 when he signed a contract with Deutsche Grammophon.

Hence, this recording was made towards the end of his contract with EMI, although he would return to the label in future years for occasional projects (like the Beethoven Triple Concerto). Recorded in Berlin’s Grunewaldkirche on May 18-20, 1958. Produced by the legendary Walter Legge, assisted by Fritz Ganss and engineered by Horst Lindner.

Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS80 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional playback head. Pressed on 180g vinyl to audiophile standards with the original album artwork.
