Karl Böhm & Wiener Philharmoniker Beethoven: Sinfonie Nr. 6 „Pastorale“ (Original Source)

Product Type: White Label Vinyl + Cover Card
Sold out!

Karl Böhm and the Vienna Philharmonic were a musical dream team for decades, and many of their recordings became cult. This applies not least to their Beethoven interpretations, including the Sixth, the "Pastoral" Symphony, recorded in 1971. “The Böhm [recording] finds this shrewdest and most rhythmically secure of Austrian conductors caressing, cajoling and inspiring the Vienna Philharmonic into one of its own – and the symphony’s – finest performances on record." (Gramophone).
For its 125th birthday, Deutsche Grammophon started releasing legendary recordings with highest sound standards: The audiophile vinyl series The Original Source presents outstanding recordings from the 1970s in a whole new sound quality. For this, the renowned Emil Berliner Studios have remastered and edited the original four-track tapes in 100% analog quality (AAA) using technologies developed specifically to produce the series. The sonic differences to the original releases are considerable: greater clarity, more subtleties and improvements in frequency response, while at the same time less background noise, distortion and compression allow for an audiophile listening experience like never before.
On 180g vinyl records and in a deluxe gatefold edition with original covers and lyrics, the copies of this series are released limited and numbered, accompanied by additional photos and facsimiles of the recording logs and band boxes, and an article explains the exact technical background.
Now available exclusively in our D2C Store: White Label of this recording pressed, including a cover card with tracklist on the back. Limited to 99 copies worldwide.
