Baumgartner: "Echo" Concertos (Vivaldi, Roman, etc.) - DG SLPM 138 947

$20.00 USD


Jacket VG / LP NM-

This excellent LP from Deutsche Grammophon (SLPM 138 947, German pressing, AH tulip label, stereo, original inner sleeve included) entitled "Echo-Konzerte" ("Echo Concertos") features the splendid conductor Rudolf Baumgartner and the estimable Festival Strings Lucerne in a fascinating album exploring the early evolution of the 'echo' in musical composition. Happily, this takes the form not of a dry academic exercise, but rather a quite delightful musical experience, with Baumgartner and the FSO providing pin-point articulation and a zestful exuberance that makes for a highly entertaining, and interesting, program.

In terms of the "echo effects" there are some truly magical moments in this program, particularly in the Vivaldi Concerto for 2 Violins, no doubt aided by DG's outstanding engineering.

Among the featured soloists are solo violinists Walter Prystawski and Herbert Höver.

Included are the following works:

Mozart: Divertimento in B-flat Major K. 137

Haydn: Divertimento in E-flat Major "The Echo"

Vivaldi: Concerto for 2 Violins and Orchestra in D Major "Echo Concerto"

Roman: Sinfonia XX in E minor

This is the first issue of these performances, and the jacket carries the publication date of 11/1964.
