Mendelssohn / Scotch & Italian Symphonies – Abbado


A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame

NM original 1968 Decca British import LP with very good sound and lovely performances. Of course the music should be part of any serious record collection. This recording may have its faults and limitations, but I listened to both sides all the way through and enjoyed each immensely. A good source for your minimum daily requirement of Decca midrange magic — the strings are just right. Plenty of ambience too.

A rare title in my experience; first one I’ve ever seen.
