180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - Sealed
In 1955 Herbert von Karajan was appointed music director for life of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. However, Karajan continued his close association with the Philharmonia Orchestra during the rest of the 1950s and with the orchestras founder and legendary EMI Producer, Walter Legge. EMI remained (on their Columbia label) Karajans record company until 1959 when he signed a contract with Deutsche Grammophon. Hence, this recording was made towards the end of his contract with EMI, although he would return to the label in future years for occasional projects (like the Beethoven Triple Concerto on HIQLP006).
Recorded in Berlins Grunewaldkirche on 18, 19 & 20 May 1958. Produced by the legendary Walter Legge, assisted by Fritz Ganss and engineered by Horst Lindner.
Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS80 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional playback head. Pressed on 180g vinyl to audiophile standards and features the original album artwork.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
