$7.00 USD

Philips (LP)

Jacket VG / LP NM / Dutch pressing

This superb LP from Philips (835 276 LY, Dutch pressing, red/silver label, stereo) features conductor Bernard Haitink and the Concertgebouw-Orchester’s wonderfully fresh rendition of Schubert’s Incidental Music to Rosamunde in which they are joined by the Netherlands Radio Choir and alto Aafje Heynis on radiant form. Philips has provided its finest analog sound, this glorious performance warmly recorded in the Grote Zaal of the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, on 31 May 1965.

The exact track list is as follows:

"Rosamunde," D. 797. Incidental Music to Wilhelmine von Chezy's play


Ouvertüre (Die Zauberharfe, D. 644)


Entr'acte No. 1


Romanze (Altsolo): Der vollmond strahlt auf bergeshöh'n


Chorus of the Spirits: "In der tiefe wohnt das licht"


Entr'acte No. 2


Ballet Music Nr. 1


Shepherd Melody


Entr'acte No. 3


Chorus of the Huntsmen: "Wie lebt sich's so frölich im grünen"


Ballet Music Nr. 2

Incidentally, the striking cover art reproduces a detail from a Persian painting dated to 1590. The reverse side of the jacket contains brief liner notes (uncredited) and the complete vocal text – all provided in German only.


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 a very slight bumping at corners, a small sticker to the front panel, and curling/discoloration along the open edge, but that is all. There are no bends, seamsplits, owners’ markings, or other defects, and the album remains solid, bright, glossy, and very attractive – overall, a very good collector's copy.

The condition of the LP itself is near-MINT. Though the surfaces are not perfectly silent (and thus I have rated it NM vs. MINT) this is a fine copy and playback is superb. If you must have perfect surfaces, then please do not buy this LP. Overall, this rates as a NM collector's copy.
