Giulini was a regular guest conductor of the Philharmonia Orchestra for many years from 1955. Carlo Maria Giulini's Philharmonia recordings for EMI are legendary: as well as the Mozart operas, he recorded the Verdi Requiem and Four Sacred Pieces as well as orchestral recordings including Dvorak's 9th Symphony and Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony, Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, Brahms's 4th Symphony and, as presented here, the much admired 1962 Debussy's La mer and Nocturnes, an album that has become highly collectable for it's sensitive interpretation and atmospheric sound. This album was pressed on 180 gram vinyl to audiophile standards using the original EMI presses by The Vinyl Factory in Hayes, England. Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS82 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional 'advance' playback head, making the cut a totally analogue process. Also features the original album artwork. 180 gram Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original Stereo Analogue Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios!
