    Beethoven: Symphony No. 5

    Beethoven was Wilhelm FurtwÄngler's guiding musical force. In his interpretations of the symphonies, the conductor generates irresistible dramatic momentum - and a constant sense of imaginative freshness - through the interrelationship of form, harmony, texture, rhythm and tempo. No work appeared more frequently in FurtwÄngler's concert programmes than Beethoven's Fifth. Between 1918 and his death in 1954, he conducted more than a hundred performances, including a superbly realized 1937 HMV studio recording with the Berlin Philharmonic and this formidable studio remake with the Vienna Philharmonic, further proof of his astonishing ability to penetrate a work to its core yet preserve it as a living entity.

    Beethoven: Emperor; Concerto No. 5 (Speakers Corner)

    The Concerto No. 5 in E flat major for Piano and Orchestra, composed in 1809 at the time of Napoleon's siege and occupation of Vienna, was Ludwig van Beethoven's last work in this form. The heroic optimism at the heart of the Concerto finds expression in the majesty of its design and the innovative virtuosity of the solo part. The dialect between piano and orchestra creates an electric atmosphere of brooding depth and sweeping grandeur. Beethoven's choice of key, the E-flat major, was not arbitrary but gave voice rather to the wild pathos in his own soul.



    Clifford Curzon's interpretation of the score is intelligent and refined, his execution characterized by introspective discipline.



    The exemplary interplay between Curzon and Hans Knappertsbusch evokes the chiaroscuro latent in each of the Emperor's three movements. The Vienna Symphony Orchestra displays its customary brilliance throughout.



    This DECCA recording, one of the very earliest in stereo, is convincing both musically and tonally. More than a document, it is a milestone in musical history.





    Musicians:



    • Sir Clifford Curzon

    • Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra

    • Hans Knappertsbusch (conductor)




    Recording: June 1957, Sofiensaal, Vienna by Gordon Parry

    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Chopin - Scherzo No. 3 / Brahms - Rhapsodies (Speakers Corner)

    The debut recording by the Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich took the public by the storm all over the world - and the applause has still not subsided! A mere glance at the repertoire shows that she was reaching for the stars. To bring five composers together on an LP of roughly 45 minutes length means nothing other than speaking five different musical languages - and Martha Argerich proves herself a master of them all! The demonic opening of the Scherzo in C sharp minor gives way to an iridiscent dialogue which sings and sparkles beyond compare. The Barcarolle rocks gently along; Prokofiev's Toccata is filled with dynamic force and nervous agitation; Ravel's Jeux d'eau is pensive and introverted, with the water rippling in a circular motion. As a contrast, the two famous Brahms Rhapsodies are performed with passion, impetuosity and occasionally the required heaviness.



    This recording is surely one of the brightest candles to burn anew on Deutsche Grammophon's birthday cake.



    This record was part of the 3-LP Set "The Conductors" and is now available again.



    Musicians:



    • Martha Argerich (piano)

    Myths abound when it comes to the late works of important composers. It is debatable as to whether this is due to their timelessness, or their often extensive form, which makes great demands on the listener, or simply the supreme skill with regard to the composer's own musical language, which is demonstrated in mature works. It is commonly understood that a performer of late works should treat them with due respect and possess an exceptional command of his instrument. But not so with Glenn Gould, who at the tender age of 23, shortly after his recording debut for the Columbia label of Bach's Goldberg Variations, dared to perform Beethoven's last three Piano Sonatas.


    Gould, as always analytical, yet supremely flowing, carves out the tightly-knit contrapuntal structure of the fast movements. The slow movements are finely perceived though free of contemplative sentiment and waft gently through the air, here somewhat drily dabbed at, then again singing and full of round, melodious piano sound. Bar for bar it is noticeable that the young Gould knows exactly what he is doing and with whom he is dealing. Here in the hands of this young maestro Beethoven's spirit is certainly compelling and intoxicating.

    Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart


    25th Anniversary Reissue


    Featuring New Liners And Photos


    When indie superstars Camper Van Beethoven signed with Virgin Records in the late 1980s, it seemed inconceivable. How could that band move to a
    major label without "selling out" and sacrificing all that made them great?


    The first three tracks on Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart were a pop song, an instrumental and an adaptation of a folk dirge about death. Heck, the
    release even had a love song for Patty Hearst. No, Camper Van Beethoven didn't sell out. They just had better distribution now.


    Omnivore Recordings is proud to take everyone back to 1988, when musical worlds collided and Camper Van Beethoven helped break the mold and blur
    the lines between indie rock and "alternative." Suddenly, it was an even playing field and Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart found itself in the bins
    next to Chicago and Cinderella. Produced by Dennis Herring (Elvis Costello, Counting Crows), the 25th anniversary of this landmark album finds it
    reissued for the first time since its original issue.


    Featuring new liners and photos, Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart is being reissued in tandem with its acclaimed follow up
    Key Lime Pie, with full cooperation and input from the band themselves. These are the releases CVB fans have been dreaming of.


    It's been a few years since the end of the 1980s, but Camper Van Beethoven has always been timeless. Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart proves
    that. It's even spelled out in the title: beloved, revolutionary and a real sweetheart.

    Limited Edition Of 1,000 Numbered Copies On 180 Gram Gold Vinyl, Black Vinyl Thereafter

    Ranked First In All-Time Top Ten List Of Shred Albums By Guitar World Magazine

    Rising Force is the first studio album by guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen, released on 5 March 1984 through Polydor Records. The album reached No. 14 on the Swedish albums chart, No. 60 on the US Billboard 200, and received a nomination for Best Rock Instrumental Performance at the 1986 Grammy Awards. It is regarded as a seminal release in the shred and neoclassical metal genres.

    Steve Huey at AllMusic gave Rising Force four stars out of five, calling it 'a revelation upon its release' and 'The true inauguration of the age of the guitar shredder'. He praised Malmsteen's technique and 'blinding virtuosity', as well as highlighting 'his obsessions with Bach, Beethoven, and Paganini'.

    In a 2009 article by Guitar World magazine, Rising Force was ranked first in the all-time top ten list of shred albums. The staff wrote: 'Yngwie J. Malmsteen was, is, and always will be the greatest shredder of all time. Hell, he invented the genre with his debut.'

    Black Star and Far Beyond the Sun have endured as two of Malmsteen's most popular songs, as well as being staples of his live setlist. In a 2008 Guitar World interview, Malmsteen said of the two songs: 'I'll probably play Far Beyond the Sun and Black Star until the day I die.'
