New for July

Music from the Proms 2016

The Henry Wood Promenade Concerts held over  eight weeks from July to September is London's biggest annual music festival. Visit our Proms page where we list music being performed this year that is available from us.

New downloads

Many music lovers miss the sound from vinyl pressings. Many others have yet to discover how pleasant the sound can be. Most of our albums are mastered from vinyl LP pressings and earlier recordings (before 1953) from 78 rpm discs. It is our ability to recreate, in the digital age, the sound from the disc era that many of our customers find most enjoyable.

Unlike modern digital recordings tracks in our albums do contain some distortion, and the occasional surface noises, but for many listeners these "defects" are soon forgotten.

Our albums are available from many download sites.

We are in the process of moving our recommended download site from iTunes to Qobuz where you can download or stream in higher quality, but at the same price as iTunes.

What the Critics Say

The following are reviews by Brian Wilson at Music Web International


Karajan Mozart

Karajan recorded the Mozart Requiem several times but this 1961 DG version was well worth reissuing. The performance is unidiosyncratic, the soloists – Wilma Lipp not to all tastes – and choir in fine voice and the recording has come up almost as well as I remember the CD sounding, albeit that both are a little muddy in some of the choruses – at least in part owing to the massive numbers employed. I can’t pretend that it’s my go-to version. It remains, however, worth considering – subscribers to Qobuz should at least stream it when it appears there.

Karajan’s g-minor symphony is predictably plush, a Haydn in golden slippers. Those who managed to get to the end of Pilgrim’s Progress and even read Part II will recall that Mr By-Ends who prefers religion ‘when he walks in his golden slippers’ comes to a sorry end, falling into a silver mine in the Hill of Lucre: he and his companions ‘never was [sic] seen again in the way’. I exempt Karajan’s recording of this symphony from the same fate.


Delibes Sylvia

The performances make Sylvia sound as fine as the more popular Coppélia and the recording has come up sounding almost brand-new in this transfer. Ideal for late-night listening.

I very much enjoyed this trip down memory lane, with two superb tenors, one in decent 1942 78 sound, the other in good stereo from 1959 and 1960, and one who at his best was very good but developed a negative reputation for those times when, at less than that best, he just made a loud noise. Most of all I enjoyed Fritz Wunderlich, making the two arias from Flotow sound just the right degree sentimental, and very well supported by Gottlob Frick.
