Telefunken (LP)

Jacket VG / LP EX / Spanish pressing

This handsome gatefold LP from Telefunken (TLA 10009, Spanish pressing, red/gold label, mono – no stereo edition exists) features cFranz André and l’Orchestre Symphonique de la Radio-Diffusion Belge (I.N.R.) in a stirring account of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade Op. 35, made in the spacious acoustics of the Palais des Beaux Arts, Brussels, on 2 October 1952. Andre, all but forgotten today, was a fine conductor and one whose recorded legacy is richly deserving of systematic re-issue on CD and renewed appreciation by collectors.

A note to the collector: Curiously, this gatefold opens on the left side versus the right side.

CONDITION:

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

The condition of the gatefold jacket is VERY GOOD. There is bumping/wear at corners, as well as edgewear along the spine, and general aging/discoloration. However, there are no seamsplits, bends, or other defects, and the album remains solid, bright, and very attractive in appearance – overall, this rates as a very good collector's copy.

The condition of the LP itself is EXCELLENT+. Though the surfaces are not absolutely silent, really this is a fine copy and the playback is quite superb. There is some pitch fluctuation towards the end of the last movement, but I believe this stems from the original transfer. Those requiring CD silent surfaces are kindly advised to look elsewhere. Overall, this rates as an excellent collector's copy.
