HD-Vinyls 24/192 (Thorens) Berlioz/Davis – Bruckner/Haitink – Strauss/Sinopoli – Shostakovich/Kondrashin

Many thanks to our friend Urbanox for this rarity
This double album is a homage to the Staatskapelle. As intended and commissioned by the Thorens company. The Swiss turntables manufacturer cannot rival the Orchestra’s 460 years, but at 125 years of age, Thorens holds the record as the oldest company of the entertainment industry still in existence. These LPs are meant as a double birthday gift: to ourselves, but above all to our many friends around the world. For friends of the Staatskapelle, friends of Thorens and above all, for lovers of good-quality music reproduction. (Heinz Roher, CEO Thorens)
