Shortly before the demise of Classic Records, the label had started a “Classic Records Presents” series of classical titles. Unfortunately, there were only two titles released before they went out of business. Both were released on their 200g Quiex SV-P vinyl and both have excellent sound quality. This was the first one.

From the Classic Records website:

Recorded on Oct 11th and 12th 1999 by the Elite Recording team of Marc Aubort and the late Joanna Nickrenz on behalf of Classic Records. This first in the series of “Classic Records Presents” features Pavel Kogan conducting his Moscow State Symphony Orchestra performing a piece of music they both know and well understand. The venue for the recording is the famous Congress House in Graz, Austria. The performance and recording are equally superb.

Many argue that Russian orchestral music is best performed by Russians and this performance lends credibility to that assertion. The recording was mastered and cut by Bernie Grundman using Classic’s ALL TUBE analog cutting system and pressed on our proprietary 200g Super Vinyl Profile for maximum fidelity and musical pleasure. This package also includes a bonus 7″ recording of Shostakovitch’s “The Coachman’s Dance” which, cut at 45 rpm, is a real thrill and a Kogan favorite encore piece.

Track List:

Side One
01 – 1st Movement: Moderato
02 – 2nd Movement: Allegretto

Side Two
03 – 3rd Movement: Largo
04 – 4th Movement: Allegro non troppo

Bonus 7″ single

        • I didn’t even know the comment was there till I went back thru all of them looking for mine. Is there a way to be notified when people leave comments?

          • Steve, you, as contributor like me, should have the possibility to see all msg by clicking on the cloud, left above…… this is the way I do, so I have every day the last comments in a view. There is surely a possibility to get noticed, when someone posts a msg…but do you really want 20-30 msgs every day? 😉

              • oh baby, don’t be too humble.
                Give to Cesar what belongs to Cesar: some days ago you had the whole page 1 for you alone…for your 180g Szeryng Brahms Concerto 😉
                Of course, I post a little more than you…if you would have same time and possibilities as me, you would submerged by feedbacks….
