Four new vinyl reissues on DG & three anniversaries

Four new releases DG
DG expands its vinyl catalogue in April with four legendary recordings marking three anniversaries. Two new vinyl releases mark Martha Argerich’s 80th birthday in June: Her recording of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Charles Dutoit; and her 1984 recording of Schumann’s Kinderszenen and Kreisleriana. New to vinyl and marking the 50th anniversary of the death of Igor Stravinsky is Pierre Boulez’ seminal recording with The Cleveland Orchestra (1992) of Pétrouchka and Le Sacre du printemps. The fourth title in the April vinyl batch marks the 30th anniversary of the death of the incredible Helmut Walcha. His acclaimed interpretation of three Bach Toccatas and Fugues (BWV 565, 540, 538), and the Toccata, Adagio & Fugue, BWV 564, played on the Schnitger Organ at St. Laurenskerk in Alkmaar, Netherlands, is now made available again on Archiv Produktion.
All recordings are mastered from original sources and pressed on 180g vinyl and are released today, 16 April 2021.
