180 Gram Vinyl Record
180-gram audiophile pressing
Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analog master tapes
Of all the famous recordings of this celebrated work, Maazel's 1962 Philharmonia recording must be the best kept secret. Passed over by comparative reviews by journalists and broadcasters (Gramophone's survey of recordings of the work in November 2014 fails to mention it at all) it is actually a stunner, both musically and sonically and is another fitting testament to the late Lorin Maazel's long and distinguished career as one of the world's greatest conductors.
Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analog master tapes with the Neumann VMS82 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional 'advance' playback head, making the cut a totally analog process.
Pressed on 180-gram vinyl to audiophile standards using the original EMI presses by The Vinyl Factory in Hayes, England.
