Patzak (conductor): Mozart Serenade No. 7 "Haffner" - Guilde Internationale du Disque MMS-2106
Jacket NM / LP EX / French pressing
This fascinating LP from Guilde International du Disque (MMS-2106, French pressing, heavy vinyl, green/silver label, mono – no stereo edition exists) features the great Viennese tenor Julius Patzak, here as conductor of the Orchestre de Chambre de Hambourg in a beautifully pointed account of Mozart’s Serenade No. 7 in D Major K. 250 (248b) “Haffner”, made in the 1950s. The lovely violin soloist heard in this performance is Saschko Gawriloff.
There are fine liner notes on the reverse side of the jacket by Artur Holde, printed in French only. The lovely cover design was executed by Graboff.
The gradations of condition I use are as follows: MINT, Near-Mint, Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor.
The condition of the jacket is near-MINT. There is bumping at corners, but that is all. There are no bends, seamsplits, owners' markings, or other defects, and the album remains solid, bright, glossy, and highly attractive – overall, this rates as a very fine collector's copy.
The condition of the LP itself is EXCELLENT. Although the surfaces are not absolutely silent, really this is a fine copy and playback is superb, close to NM. Those requiring a flawless or near-MINT copy are advised to look elsewhere. Overall, this is an excellent collector's copy
