TCHAIKOVSKY: Symphony Nº 4 in F  Minor, Op. 36  IN STEREO
LALO: Scherzo in D Minor

    $12.00 per CD

This release was made after countless requests. Both works exhibit much detail from both woodwinds and brass with a French flair. It is different but a worthy and dramatic approach providing that "first time" listening effect.  HQ MP3 sample here      IN STEREO 


 Leslie Jones Haydn Symphonies Series


SHOSTAKOVICH: Symphony Nº 1 in F Minor, Op. 10
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, William Steinber, Conductor
SHOSTAKOVICH: Symphony Nº 5 in D Minor, Op. 47
National Symphony Orchestra, DC, HOward Mitchell, Conductor

This RCA "Living Stereo" release of the Shostakovich 5th got raves when released in the late 50's (Sputnik?) This Mitchell performance is deliberate yet extremely intense.  Steinberg's  idea of the Shostakovich 1st is quite unique with wide stereo separation, typical of its source on Command LP.  Clean LP sources were used for both transfers

Symphony Nº 1 in E Minor, Op. 39
Symphony Nº 7 in C Major, Op. 105 


    $12.00 per CD

Two great Sibelius symphonies, superbly played, recorded and transferred to CD. The tempi are deliberate and the brass is incredible throughout with plenty of woodwind highlights.  The mp3 sample will tell all.   A Triumph!

HAYDN: Symphony Nº 77 in B Flat Major
HAYDN: Symphony Nº 34 in D Minor
English Chamber Orchestra, Raymond Leppard, Conductor
HAYDN: Symphony Nº 18 in G Major*
London Symphony Orchtra, Charles Mackerras, Conductor

    $12.00 per CD


Raym nd Leppard recorded several Haydn Symphonies with great results but all have not been officially released. The elusive symphonies 77 and 34 are two of them and deserve more exposure and have wonderful sound.  Mackerras/LSO members recorded the 18th as part of the incomplete Gobermann Odyssey series.  The sound has been greatly improved with this CD transfer release.

SIBELIUS: Four Legends from the Kalevala, for Orchestra
   1. Lemminkäinen and the Virgins of Saari; 2. The Swan Of Tuonela 
   3. Lemminkäinen in Tuonela; 4. Lemmenkäinen's Return

SIBELIUS: Karelia Suite, Op. 11
   1. Intermezzo; 2. Ballade; 3. Alla marcia

    $12.00 per CD

 The Four Legends of Sibelius deserve much more exposure. Maybe it is due to the ineptitude of too many of the current crop of most of our conductors trying to make music these days.  Thomas Jensen and the Danish STSO give us their all here from a clean, like new  LP.  The Karelia Suites comes to us by way of a 45 RPM disc of similar quality.

When these overtures appeared on LP in the early 1950's they were a sensation.  There is plenty of abandon and momentun here and all is totally French.  The mp3 collage is short but includes bits of all the overture within this release. If you can name them in the proper order, consider yourself a master of this ebullient music.

Karl Munchinger, Conductor
Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra 
MOZART: Serenade Nº 7 in D Major, K. 250 ("Haffner")

   $12.00 per CD

Considered to be some of Mozart's most precious orchestral music of the pre-Vienna period.  Solo violin work is done by Willi Boskovsky. This recording features Mozart's second version which includes timpani.   Recorded in the late 1950's from a very rare near-mint London "Blueback" LP with all the Vienna Philharmonic playing style, Mozart and Munchinger.  It is a wonderful recording of this music.

Leslie Jones Haydn Symphonies Series
Eduard van Beinum
Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam 
MAHLER: Symphony Nº 6 in A Minor

    $12.00 per CD

Recorded in concert on December 7, 1955,  Eduard van Beinum and his Concertgebouw Orchestra give us one of the most powerful performances of this enigmatic music.  Expect is no sentimental "oozing" but a straightforward interpretation, letting the music speak for itself. The sound is quite adequate yet occasionally problematic considering source materials. EVB avoids the repeat of the first movement giving an added momentum to the performance:  "Let's get on with it!"  Total time: 72:51   HQ MP3  sample here
