White Hot Stamper

Bruch - Scottish Fantasia / Mendelssohn - Violin Con. - Campoli

  (Item #: bruchscott_15015_1912) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • As good as the Mendelssohn is on side one - with Double Plus (A++) sound it would have to be excellent indeed - the crowning glory of this disc is the Scottish Fantasy on side two
  • It's some of the best sound we have ever heard for the work, right up there with our longtime favorite, the Heifetz on Living Stereo (LSC 2603)
  • One of the truly great 1959 All Tube Kenneth Wilkinson "Decca Tree" recordings in Kingsway Hall, captured faithfully in all its beauty on this very disc
  • Referring to the Mendelssohn, Gramophon noted: "[Campoli's] virtuosity in the finale are as self-evident as is the excellence of the accompaniment under Sir Adrian Boult. There are many felicitous touches and the distinguished soloist plays magnificently throughout."
More of the music of Max Bruch (1938-1920)

Bach, Mendelssohn, Widor / Discovery / Welch

  (Item #: bach_discovery_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This is an INCREDIBLY RARE Wilson Audio LP in IMMACULATE condition, with works by Bach, Mendelssohn, Widor and others. Click on the images of the record labels for a full track listing. This is actually an amazing sounding record. I’ve owned a copy for over 20 years. It's some of the best sounding organ music with the deepest bass I've ever heard.

Mendelssohn & Prokofiev / Concertos / Heifetz / Munch

Classic Records Debunked

  (Item #: mendevioli_2314_classic_records) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing and another Heavy Vinyl Classical LP debunked.

Classic Records ruined this album, as expected. Their version is dramatically more aggressive, edgy and smeared than the better vintage pressings. In fact it's just plain awful, like most of the classical recordings they remastered.

Mendelssohn & Prokofiev / Concertos / Heifetz / Munch

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: mendevioli_2314_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This BETTER than Super Hot Stamper (A++ to A+++) White Dog pressing has DEMO DISC QUALITY SOUND on side one for the Mendelssohn concerto! It really has the Breath of Life. On top of that it's quiet, playing mostly Mint Minus, something that we don't run into too often with fifty year old Living Stereo pressings! Now I see why Harry Pearson put this record on his TAS List. Most copies do not sound remotely as good as this one on side one. (Side two is a step down; it would almost have to be.)

Mendelssohn & Schubert / Symphony No. 4 & Symphony No. 5

Reviewed in 2014

  (Item #: mendesym4_90356_2014) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

The strings are rich, with lovely rosiny texture and virtually no tube smear. Played with zest and the recording is every bit as lively.

The grade on side one could even be better than Two Pluses -- we just don't have enough clean copies to know. Big bass at the end, powerful dynamics too.

Mendelssohn / Scotch & Italian Symphonies -- Abbado

  (Item #: mendescotc_fame) 



NM original 1968 Decca British import LP with very good sound and lovely performances. Of course the music should be part of any serious record collection. This recording may have its faults and limitations, but I listened to both sides all the way through and enjoyed each immensely. A good source for your minimum daily requirement of Decca midrange magic -- the strings are just right. Plenty of ambience too.

A rare title in my experience; first one I've ever seen.

Mendelssohn / Scotch Symphony & Fingal’s Cave / Dorati

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: mendescotc_90123_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

The sound of this Super Hot Stamper side one came as a bit of a surprise to us. It's so BIG and RICH -- this is a Mercury? It sounds like a good Decca/ London. It's actually instead a bit of a hybrid. The recording takes place in a famous London hall with superb acoustics (Walthamstow Town Hall) in which the Mercury recording team merely set up their usual three mics and recorded to half-inch tape. Gone is the dryness and upper-midrange nasality of so many Mercury's; no doubt that sound was caused in large part by the halls in which they were recorded.

Mendelssohn / Scotch Symphony / Maag

Reviewed in 2011

  (Item #: mendescotc_6191_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

Both sides of this record have that classic Decca chocolatey, rich, sweet sound. It''s not for everybody, it''s probably not the sound one would hear in a concert hall, but we love it and so do many audiophiles.

The performance here by Maag is legendary and definitive. The sound is perfectly suited for this music, with massed strings to die for. This is classic Tubey Magical Decca orchestral sound. If you want immediacy, buy a Mercury. If you want luscious, rich string tone, this London should be right up your alley.

Mendelssohn / Violin Concerto in E Minor / Rybar

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: mendevioli_wh_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This Whitehall budget reissue stereo pressing has SUPERB Super Hot Stamper sound on both sides and a performance by Peter Rybar that can hold its own against any you may have heard.

Mendelssohn and Bruch / Violin Concertos / Ricci / Gamba

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: mendevioli_6010_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

One of the great London violin concerto records. With a Super Hot Stamper copy such as this one, the Mendelssohn here has DEMO QUALITY SOUND!

In Ruggiero Ricci's hands both works are nothing short of magical (although the Bruch never sounds especially good in our experience). If you want to know why people drool over Golden Age recordings, listen to the violin on side one. If you're not careful you may find yourself drooling too.

Mozart / Mendelssohn - The Heifetz-Piatigorsky Concerts

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: mozarheife_3048_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

The Mozart side of this Red Seal pressing from 1968 sounds AMAZING. I have never heard better staging for a chamber work of this kind. All five instruments are so clearly set apart from each other and tonally correct (for the most part) that it is nothing less than fascinating to be able to follow each instrument as it weaves its way through the score. If you've suffered through the horrendously sour and screechy recordings Heifetz and Piatigorsky are known for in audiophile circles -- LDS 2513 and LDS 6159, you will be glad to know that this side one sounds NOTHING like them.

Tchaikovsky / 1812 Overture / Reiner

Our Shootout Winner from 2017

  (Item #: tchai1812o_2241_2017) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

The real stars here are NOT the 1812, but the three coupling works, which demonstrate, on this copy at least, The Real Power of the Orchestra. The remarkably rich, Tubey Magical and oh-so-rosiny Living Stereo strings and powerful, dynamic brass make this a real demo quality orchestral heavyweight. Lizst's Mephisto Waltz, Mendelssohn's The Hebrides Overture, and the Tragic Overture by Brahms are the Must Own 36 minutes worth of music on the record.
