First vinyl LP ever made recre­ated

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

The first ever vinyl LP ever pressed, Felix Men­delssohn’s Vi­olin Con­certo in e mi­nor, has been recre­ated to cel­e­brate seven decades of the for­mat.

The orig­i­nal mas­ter tapes and art­work from the 1948 re­lease have been used in the recre­ation of the record, which was first re­vealed to the world by for­mer Columbia Records pres­i­dent God­dard Lieber­son.

The al­bum fea­tures the play­ing of vi­o­lin­ist Nathan Mil­stein and the Phil­har­monic Sym­phony Or­ches­tra of New York.
