Product Description

CD90272 Poulenc, Whittemore, Lowe, Mitropoulos

Dear all,

Sorry for my infrequent showings but I'm often running out of things to upload, as OS's (perfectly reasonable) rules forbid oop CDs and LPs and all my inhouse stuff since 2005, but here's a new thing I bought off Ebay which I can share and I think it's rather special;

RCA's 1949 recording of Poulenc's wonderful concerto for two pianos with Jack Lowe and Arthur Whittemore with the RCA Victor Orchestra conducted by a fav of mine, Dimitri Mitropoulos. It was released as 3 78s in a heavy box and the version I have just bought was the subsequent early 50s issue on 3 45rpm discs in a box, sharing the same awkward movement breaks as the 78s. I have just played them into Audacity and done pretty good edits to bring it back to shape. The 78 sides breaks are at 3min10sec (pretty awkward break) 10.37 and 16min57sec. Crackly mono sound but it's worth hearing. Great spritely performance; a lot better than Poulenc's own recording with Pretre. Enjoy.

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.
