Gilbert & Sullivan Overtures (Mikado / Penzance / Pinafore / Iolanthe / Yeomen / Gondoliers , 1959 HMV - XLP 20003)

£4.99

Product description

ABOUT THE RECORDED MATERIAL:-
Gilbert and Sullivan refers to the Victorian-era theatrical partnership of the librettist W. S. Gilbert (1836–1911) and the composer Arthur Sullivan (1842–1900). The two men collaborated on fourteen comic operas between 1871 and 1896.

Sir Malcolm Sargent (1895 – 1967) was an English conductor, organist and composer widely regarded as Britain's leading conductor of choral works. The musical ensembles with which he was associated included the Ballets Russes, the Huddersfield Choral Society, the Royal Choral Society, the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company, and the London Philharmonic, Hallé, Liverpool Philharmonic, BBC Symphony and Royal Philharmonic orchestras.

Sargent was held in high esteem by choirs and instrumental soloists, but because of his high standards and a statement that he made in a 1936 interview disputing musicians' rights to tenure, his relationship with orchestral players was often uneasy. Despite this, he was co-founder of the London Philharmonic, was the first conductor of the Liverpool Philharmonic as a full-time ensemble, and played an important part in saving the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra from disbandment in the 1960s.

ABOUT THE ITEM:-
This is a 1959 recording on His Master's Voice (see photo two), illustrated by an unknown cover-artist. The cover is in very good condition-plus, and, despite some scuffing around the edges, has survived the ravages of time comparitively well. There is only a slight, 1cm tear, on the bottom-right hand corner, no other rips or tears.

The first side of the disc has a scratch, which is slightly less than an inch long (see photo four, though the scale of the photo will be different to actual), but this should not significantly affect the playing of the record, as it is superficial, and cannot be felt. There are no other scratches on the disc's two sides.

Side One:-
1) Overture to "The Mikado" 2) Overture to "The Gondoliers" 3) Overture to "The Yeomen of the Guard"

Side Two:-
1) Overture to "The Pirates of Penzance" 2) Overture to "HMS Pinafore" 3) Overture to "Iolanthe"
