Davis/London SO: Stravinsky Le sacre du printemps (rec. 1963) - Philips 835 252 AY
Jacket EX / LP NM
This beautiful and rather scarce LP from Philips (835 252 AY, Dutch pressing, red/silver label / bold letter logo*, stereo) features the young Sir Colin Davis and the London Symphony Orchestra in a trenchant account of Stravinsky’s Le sacre du printemps (The Sacred Rite of Spring), sumptuously recorded at Walthamstow Assembly Hall, London, in November 1963.
This remarkable performance was produced and engineered by Vittorio Negri. The striking cover photo was taken by Tom G.W. Boks and there are extensive liner notes (uncredited) on the reverse side of the jacket, provided in German only.
*Please note: The “Hi-Fi Stereo” logo appears only on the jacket – not on the LP itself.
