EMI Columbia / Testament - 33CX 1140 - 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl

AAA 100% Analogue Audiophile Mastering at Abbey Road - Pressed in Germany

Testament has revived these classic titles from the EMI catalog using only the original EMI master tapes,cut onto lacquer at EMI's Abbey Road Studios and mastered using full analog techniques throughout production.

Dennis Brain was a British virtuoso horn player largely responsible for popularizing the horn as a solo classical instrument. Along with Herbert von Karajan and the Philharmonia Orchestra, Brain recorded the definitive versions of Mozart's horn concertos.


Mozart Horn Concerto Movement, the EMI producer Walter Legge in November 1953 in The Kingsway Hall in London with the legendary horn virtuoso Dennis Brain, quickly became one of the best-selling LPs at EMI and stayed until the end of the LP era at the full price in the catalog. The Gramophone Good CD Guide calls Brains music "uniquely inspiring", and the recording is now the undisputed musical standard, after which all subsequent recordings and even performances of these works are judged

 In the 1999 Penguin Guide, it says: "As for his playing, Brains's marvelous sound and phrasing - every note lives - are full of joy in their warmth; The espressivo of the slow movements is complemented by the joy of the rondos: spirited, cheerful, contagious, with a smile. Karajan's accompaniment is also a model of good Mozart, and the Philharmonic orchestra is at the height of its witty and elegant play. "The new testament transmissions elicit the best sound quality from the original recordings and make them appear in their best light
