Beulah quoted

"These are careful transfers which make the most of the material, whereas I suspect that some others just stick an LP or 78s on the turntable and give us what comes out the other end. Beulah’s results are comparable with the fine transfers which Naxos Historical offer. " Brian Wilson at Music Web International

"The Beulah record label has always been one of the most idiosyncratic, and therefore perhaps most interesting, of reissue marques. While the basic character of Beulah remains the same as in its Compact Disc days, the range of its present catalogue, driven now by the ease of downloading, has been extended in remarkable fashion. Browsing the Beulah catalogue is now rather like being in a 78rpm record shop: there are plenty of recordings of short pieces available to whet your appetite for either repertoire or artist, while at the same time there are numerous full length works available if you wish to consolidate your collection with, for instance, major symphonies. All of Beulah's transfers, as might be expected of a distinguished reissue label, are of very high quality." David Patmore writing in Classical Recordings Quarterly

"Beulah releases are available from other suppliers but qobuz; offer  them  in  lossless  sound  for  the  same  price  that others charge for mp3 – in some cases that’s less than full bit-rate mp3." Brian Wilson at Music Web International 


New for June

Many music lovers miss the sound from vinyl pressings. Many others have yet to discover how great the sound can be. Most of our albums are mastered from vinyl LP pressings and earlier recordings (generally 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 and streaming sites.

We highly recommend downloading from qobuz where you can download or stream in high quality, for the same price as iTunes medium quality.

"It is a bold statement by Beulah to start this series of the early recordings of Bernard Haitink with this particular coupling. Diepenbrock is hardly a household name and what commentary there is on him seems to damn him with faint praise. Similarly, what was Haitink’s first recording of a Mahler symphony (I believe) has tended to be dismissed as a rare misfire by this conductor in this music. Beulah have made something of a specialism of confounding expectations and I, for one, have learnt that if Beulah think something is worth releasing there is more to the recording than first impressions suggest.

"Performance matters aside, the Mahler sounds glorious. If, like me, you are a sucker for the classic LP sound, you will adore this. There is a boldness to the sound picture that seems to have fallen somewhat out of favour. Beulah have worked on this like master restorers bringing out the depth and colour in a Renaissance masterpiece.

" Obviously these are classic performances that,I think, show Cantelli at his best. "

"I compared this Beulah version with the release on Phillips Concert Classics. The sound on the latter sounded rather weedy and I found myself wondering if that was one of the reasons for the generally low opinion of this recording. What Beulah have done best is to open out the sound...By opening up the picture somewhat, Beulah let the manifold elements of Mahler’s orchestration be heard. More importantly, this fuller sonic image sounds more characteristically like a Haitink performance- little flash but lots and lots of good musical sense.
