Jacket EX / LP NM / German pressing

This beautiful LP from EMI/Electrola (1C 065-02 527 Q, German pressing, colored dog-in-stamp label, quadrophonic stereo) features conductor Mstislav Rostropovich and l’Orchestre de Paris’ high-octane account of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade Op. 35, sumptuously recorded in the Salle Wagram, Paris, in July 1974. The charismatic soloist heard throughout is Concertmaster Luben Yordanoff.

The exact track listing is as follows:

Scheherazade Op. 35

  1. The sea and Sinbad's ship


  1. The story of the Kalander Prince


III. The young prince and the young princess


  1. Festival at Bagdad - The sea - The ship goes to pieces on a rock surmounted by a bronze warrior


This album was produced by Ronald Kinloch Anderson and engineered by Paul Vavasseur.

The amazing cover art reproduces a detail of a painting by Marc Chagall given to the cellist. There are brief but insightful liner notes on the reverse side of the jacket by J. Kesting, provided in German and English.


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

The condition of the jacket is EXCELLENT. There is minor bumping/wear 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, an excellent collector's copy.

The condition of the LP itself is near-MINT and the playback is outstanding – overall, a truly fine collector's copy.
