Brand new audiophile recording in 2LP vinyl edition!
For the first time since the 1990s a famous and important orchestra and a very important conductor are making a completely new TRUE ANALOGUE recording: The Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the city of Vienna’s renowned orchestra, conducted by Fabio Luisi, proudly presents the first production of its own, newly founded label “Wiener Symphoniker” in cooperation with Pro-Ject Audio Systems.
The vinyl edition is limited to 3000 copies and was supervised by selected audio experts. A special analog Mastering on original panels, as well as a careful, limited pressing slide are the prerequisites for a unique sound experience. Each movement is cut to one LP side, to cover the entire analogue frequency range.The pressing of this double LP was done on high-quality 180 gr. vinyl.
The first release is a paradigmatic example of the Wiener Symphoniker’s core repertoire. Gustav Mahler’s 1st Symphony in D major was written only four years before the orchestra was founded in 1900. So, not surprisingly, Gustav Mahler’s symphonies and their interpretational challenges were among the main interests of the orchestra and its many renowned conductors from the very beginning. Above that Mahler’s Symphony “No. 1”, being the first oeuvre of a Vienna revolutionary, is more than suitable for the start of a new Vienna orchestra label.
