$30.00 USD

Philips (LP)

Jacket EX / LP NM

This handsome limited-edition gatefold LP from Philips (C. 8 “Réalités”, French pressing, pink/white label, mono, heavy gatefold jacket) features Isaac Stern’s high-octane accounts of Prokofiev's two Violin Concertos.

The exact contents and discographic information are as follows:

Side 1

Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No. 1 in D Major Op. 19

> with Dimitri Mitropoulos conducting the New York Philharmonic Orchestra

(rec. 3 March 1958 at Columbia 30th Street Studio, New York City)

Side 2

Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No. 2 in G minor Op. 63

> with Leonard Bernstein conducting the New York Philharmonic Orchestra

(rec. 22 January 1957 at Columbia 30th Street Studio, New York City)

Incidentally, the remarkable cover art reproduces a tapestry (“Feuillage Solaire”) by Jean Picard le Doux, from Atelier Berlhant d’Aubusson.

Those unfamiliar with Philips Realites series would do well to investigate them j- they consist of a very heavy laminated cardboard gatefold jacket with very extensive liner notes and numerous archival photos – in this case of Prokofiev (on the podium, no less), Mitropoulos, and of Stern and Bernstein during the actual recording sessions.
