The performance remains well worth hearing and the recording is remarkably good for its age, its limitations merely making it sound mellow. Brian Wilson at Music Web International

Tchaikovsky Marche Slav - Tuxen

The Marche Slave dates from a time when the recording companies had got the hang of reproduction of taped sound on LP and still sounds well, though in mono. The performance is excellent. Brian Wilson at Music Web International
 Neilsen Symphony No 4 - Jensen
Click on image for full size printable inlay image
listen and buy
Thomas Jensen was an authoritative conductor of Nielsen’s music and his recording of the Inextinguishable Symphony may have been equalled but it has never been bettered. The Beulah transfer leaves the recording sounding limited by modern standards but remarkable for its age with minimal surface noise and a decent tonal range which in no way interfered with my enjoyment. The fact that the symphony comes complete on one track means that there are none of the short breaks between tracks which usually occur with mp3 where the music is continuous. Brian Wilson at Music Web International
Mendelssohn The Hebrides Overture - van Beinum

TIt’s a stylish performance, capturing the magic of the music, and the recording sounds very well for its age, with just an occasional trace of surface noise and a touch of strain in the sound of the high strings. Brian Wilson at Music Web International

Recorded in 1936, but still sounding very well in these Beulah transfers, with just an occasional unavoidable plop. Playing styles may have moved on since Schweitzer was hailed as indisputably one of the greatest men alive, and even then his playing was thought to be ponderous, but these valuable historical documents were well worth reissuing.

Earlier releases on Beulah Extra have included Schweitzer recordings of Bach from 1935 on 3-5BX60 Brian Wilson at Music Web International

Click on image for full size printable inlay image

Wunderlich has some claim to be regarded as one of the greatest tenors of all time – indeed he was recently voted the greatest by the readers of a music magazine – and these recordings demonstrate why. He even manages to make the wimpish Don Ottavio sound positive in the excerpt from Don Giovanni.

There’s a wide range of material here – Wunderlich was as much at home in operetta as in oratorio and opera – and not everyone will want the whole bundle, which is why it’s so useful to be able to select. I have to be in the right mood to be receptive to operetta, but I can take it at any time as sung by Wunderlich. On the other hand he confirms my belief that Mozart and Wagner are the two greatest opera composers.

Fortunately Wunderlich lived long enough to be recorded in decent sound and Beulah’s transfers are excellent. Only a slightly tubby bass gives the age away. Brian Wilson at Music Web International

I can only echo the verdict when these recordings first appeared in the UK, that Katin’s performances are very successful: even now they remain competitive. With a recording which still sounds very well in Beulah’s transfer. Brian Wilson at Music Web International

New from iTunes

This month two new albums have been released at iTunes

The outstanding work is Eric COATES Calling all Workers, used as the theme tune for the BBC Light Programme’s Workers’ Playtime. An enjoyable album. Brian Wilson at Music Web International

Like Fritz Wunderlich, Dawson’s fine singing makes even the less accomplished music sound well. Though only Albert Arlen’s Clancy of the Overflow was recorded in stereo (1955) and some of the recordings date from as early as 1920, Beulah’s transfer makes the most of the sound.
