New for August

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


Klemperer conducts Brahms

"With Klemperer’s Brahms symphonies now available only in box sets, the Beulah single release of Symphony No.2 is very welcome. By 1956 Klemperer was already tending towards slowish tempi but by no means in an extreme manner. Though he allows plenty of space for the first movement to breathe, for example, Walter takes about as long and Karajan, from a few years later, takes slightly longer. The close of the finale fairly gallops along, as joyous a conclusion as you could wish. With a very fine recording transfer – a ‘solid’ sound to match the interpretation* – this is a strong recommendation for all but confirmed anti-Klemperer readers – and even they might benefit from listening to the streamed version from Qobuz."


Mendelssohn's Art

"Here be riches indeed in a very generously filled programme. The Piano Trio recording may date from 1929 but it remains in many ways the benchmark by which to judge modern accounts. There are a few ghostly hints of shellac surface noise but not sufficient to spoil my enjoyment of hearing this classic account again: you would hardly credit its age in this transfer.

"There’s more magic in the Vienna Octet recording of the wonderful Octet. With Willi Boskovsky leading a most distinguished team, even the mono recording, its limitations easily ignored, didn’t spoil my enjoyment.

"I hadn’t encountered this recording of the Italian Symphony before. It’s not in quite the same league as the other two items, except recording-wise, but it completes a very worthwhile album. The outer movements are taken at a suitably sprightly pace."


Great Piano Concertos

"Another very generously filled offering. I wouldn’t have classed No.14 as one of Mozart’s ‘greatest’ piano concertos but even this early work is a minor masterpiece. Walter Klien made a number of Mozart recordings for Vox in the 1960s and though the Vienna Pro Musica was hardly world-class, it’s well suited to this music, matching Klien’s light touch and the recording has come up better than most Vox LPs of similar vintage.

"Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto has stronger claims to ‘greatness’ than K449; in fact I tend to listen to it and the Third more often than the more famous ‘Emperor’ Concerto. Having compared Backhaus’s stereo Brahms unfavourably with his earlier mono recording, I have to say that his Beethoven suffers less than his Brahms but this is a rather cool performance, albeit of the work which more than any of Beethoven’s other concertos lends itself to a slightly cool interpretation. The recording has come up well, perhaps because Decca over-generously devoted a whole 12” LP to it.

"Though Askenase’s Chopin was regarded at the time as in the shadow of Vásáry, both DG artists, I liked the earlier reissue and that applies equally to its new reappearance."

"Toscanini’s Wagner is well worth at least dipping a toe into. As you might expect Toscanini excels in the more dramatic music but he also offers a sensitive performance of the Good Friday Music, sometimes known as the Good Friday Spell, for reasons which this performance makes clear, and in the lively Meistersinger preludes. "
