LP EX

French pressing

This beautiful LP from Pathé (DMX 104, Spanish pressing, red/silver label – ED1, mono) features conductor Louis Fourestier and l’ Orchestre Nacional de la Radiodiffusion Française in a brilliant program pairing orchestral works by Edouard Lalo and Camille Saint-Saëns, all vividly recorded in the warm acoustics of the Maison de la Mutualité, Paris, in May 1952.

The exact program is as follows:

Edouard Lalo

            Le Roi d’Ys Overture

            Scherzo

 

Camille Saint-Saëns

            Suite Algérienne Op. 60

Fourestier and ONRTF players bring both poetry and panache to these remarkable scores, mining them for all the atmosphere, drama, and color they possess – superb performances.

Incidentally, the striking cover art was executed by Alain Carrier. The reverse side of the jacket carries insightful liner notes by Serge Berthoumieux, provided in Spanish only.

CONDITION:

The gradations of condition I use are as follows: MINT, Near-Mint, Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor.

The condition of the jacket is VERY GOOD. There is corner wear and creasing, as well as a small bit of writing and discoloraiton to the rear panel. However, there are no seamsplits, bends, or other defects and the album remains solid, bright, and highly attractive – overall, a very good collector's copy.

The condition of the LP itself is EXCELLENT. Although the surfaces are not perfectly silent, really this is a fine copy and playback is superb, close to NM. If you must have a flawless or NM copy, then please do not buy this LP. Overall, rates as an excellent collector's copy.
