Product Description

CD83676 Ormandy in Schumann and McDonald symphonies

Two symphonies from a great conductor whom I long took for granted, Eugene Ormandy, in early recordings he made with the Philadelphia Orchestra. First is Schumann's Symphony No. 2 in C, Op. 61, recorded in 1936 or 1937 and released as Victor Musical Masterpiece set M-448, a set of 5 78-rpm records. It's a fine reading that makes one regret Ormandy didn't record a complete Schumann symphony cycle. The ZIP file contains 4 MP3 files at 160kbps, and a text file: The other symphony is "The Santa Fe Trail," the three-movement Symphony No. 1 by Colorado-born Harl McDonald (1899-1955), the business manager of the Philadelphia Orchestra. (The cynical side of me would say that is the only reason his music got recorded! but actually, the piece is rather fun in its neo-Debussyan, picture-postcard sort of way.) This was recorded October 20, 1940, and released as Victor Musical Masterpiece set M-754, a set of 3 78-rpm records. The ZIP file contains 3 MP3 files at 160 kbps, JPG scans of the booklet, and a text file:

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
