Beethoven - Eroica
(HMV ASD-426 UK-6? VG+ 500:-)

One of the great unsung conductors of the middle twentieth century, Rudolf Kempe is perhaps best remembered as a connoisseur's conductor, one valued for his strong creative temperament rather than for any personal mystique.

One of the Beethoven's most celebrated works, the Eroica symphony is a large-scale composition that broke boundaries in symphonic form, length, harmony, emotional and cultural content. It is widely considered a landmark in the transition between the Classical and the Romantic era.

2nd UK pressing on the RED label.
Enrico Caruso - Complete Recordings
(Murray Hill 920328 US-73 VG+ 350:-)

Italian operatic tenor Enrico Caruso is touted as one of the most popular opera singers of the twentieth century.

Caruso’s ascent ran parallel with the emergence of early recording technology. Because of his use of the gramophone record as a medium for his art, the gramophone record became socially acceptable. Caruso recorded approximately 290 commercially released recordings. This 14LP Box Set collects 238 performances; Arias, Ballads, Neapolitan Songs etc.
Wagner/Solti - Der Ring des Nibelungen
(Decca D100D UK-78 EX 800:-)

This first complete studio recording of Wagner's "Der Ring des Nibelungen", made between 1958 and 1966, was a groundbreaking technical and artistic achievement, the most ambitious and intricately involved opera recording project of the 20th century.

Producer John Culshaw and conductor Georg Solti assembled the most impressive Wagnerian musicians available. The Vienna Philharmonic, one of the very finest orchestras in the world, plays with a sure grasp of Wagner's style, with passionate intensity and with impeccable musicianship. Solti's epic vision of the Ring glows in its details and overwhelms in its sweeping drama.
