Beethoven: 9 Symphonies (Furtwangler, Walter) - Melodiya (8LP box set)

$75.00 USD

Melodiya (LP)

Box GOOD / LPs EX

Russian pressing - yellow labels - mono / booklet included

The box is crushed and a bit misshapen, but is free of corner breaks or seam splits. The booklet is VG-. Some of the pages are loose and it shows aging, but no pages are missing and it could be repaired.

An odd compendium of Beethoven's 9 Symphonies, plus Brahms's Tragic Overture and Bruckner's Te Deum, featuring conductors Bruno Walter, Wilhelm Furtwangler and Arturo Toscanini. These LPs were issued separately by Melodiya, but were apparently gathered ad hoc to arrive at complete traversal of the Nine Symphonies of Beethoven. The most interesting performances are those of Furtwangler, as these copies no doubt used the masters seized in Berlin by the Russian Army following Germany's defeat.
