Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

33rpm LP Record of SXL 6233 BEETHOVEN SYMPHONY 9, featuring Joan Sutherland, Marilyn Horne, James King, Martti Talvela. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt. It was issued on the DECCA wideband grooved (Made in England) label in 1966 and is subsequently a first issue (ED2). Insert included of stanzas from 'Ode To Joy'.

The record itself is graded at least excellent, with only one or two light surface marks visible under normal house lighting. Very good sound quality, with NO jumps, ticks or crackle and only a very occasional light dust pop.

Minimal to no spindle wear. Labels very clean, light spider marks.

The outer and inner sleeves are also graded at least excellent, with no major wear to speak of, just some light rubbing/bumping and very slight creasing to one corner. The insert has no wear to speak of.

Beethoven's great Choral Symphony comes as the concluding masterpiece of his series of works in that field, the crowning orchestral composition that was the assertion of his belief in the essential goodness of humanity and that one day 'all men shall be brothers', and the fulfilment of the man's colossal creative spirit. With its enormous proportions, its mastery of construction and the range of its expression it stands in a class by itself, far removed from anything that Beethoven had ever attempted or accomplished before. Composed at a time when the composer's ill-health, deafness, reduced circumstances, and the aggravation caused by his roguish nephew Karl were pressing heavily upon him, the Choral Symphony is a magnificent testimonial of the power of Beethoven's genius to manifest extreme greatness out of extreme sorrow.

Tracks are:

  • ALLEGRO MA NON TROPPO, UN POCO MAESTOSO
  • MOLTO VIVACE
  • ADAGIO MOLTO E CANTABILE (PART 1)
  • ADAGIO MOLTO E CANTABILE (CONCLUDED)
