Description

Andre Previn's Music Night on LP

When legendary record producer John Culshaw left Decca in 1967 to become Head of Music at BBC Television, he inaugurated and supervised several series of Andre Previn's Music Night, in which Previn would talk informally direct to camera and then turn and conduct the London Symphony Orchestra, whose members were dressed not in evening clothes but in casual sweaters or shirts. The program attracted unprecedented viewing figures for classical music in the early and mid 1970s in the U.K. Taking advantage of the television program's success, EMI recorded Previn and the LSO at the Kingsway Hall, London on 15 December 1974 and 19 & 20 May 1975 in a program of popular music typical of the series. These recordings were produced and engineered by Christopher Bishop and Christopher Parker respectively. Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS80 lathe fed analogue precut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional playback head. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl to audiophile standards.
