Product Description

CD85310 Brahms Symphony No.4 Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Paul Paray

This Mercury Olympian LP is a French pressing of MG50057 issued in 1955. From the record jacket (roughly translating from the French): "For Paul Paray this recorded performance of the Brahms Fourth Symphony with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the organization he has molded into a great body of musicians, has special significance; for with this disc, and those of the works of Wagner (Mercury MG50044, MG50021) and Beethoven (MG50045, MG50022), Mr. Paray feels he has achieved some proper representation on discs of his work as interpreter of the great classics of the German repertoire. Already critics and public in the U.S.A. and overseas have widely acclaimed Mr. Paray's immensely warm and vital readings of Beethoven and Wagner released earlier. The Mercury recording staff for its part has brought to bear every resource of its Living Presence single microphone recording technique in an effort to achieve a definitive realization of Mr. Paray's interpretive intent and the composer's music. The recording took place in Orchestra Hall, the original home of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, on March 26, 1955, a single Tele-funken microphone being maintained in set position throughout with the orchestra seated in normal concert arrangement. Advance preparations were such that re-takes were kept to a minimum, thus insuring the maximum continuity of line throughout the whole of the music in its final recorded form. The entire gigantic finale is heard on this disc as one uninterrupted and unedited take."

A single lossless FLAC file, which when unzipped will yield the works's four separate movements and a scan of the LP cover

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.
