At about album number in , Capitol began reissuing the rpm albums on 10" LPs, and occasionally 12" LPs. Few of their releases from this point were still only. This page covers the early days of the 10" vinyl LP.
The 10" LPs used the "H-" prefix for most, but pricier albums like original cast records were designated with the prefix "L-". Some were issued with the "H-" prefix, then reissued with the "L-" prefix, or vice versa. We would appreciate any additions or corrections to this discography.

In Canada the brothers continued as usual and they will continue to be involved in the business in Europe.
There the Josefowitz brothers do not run the business directly but own a substantial number of shares. They also will be involved in the American Crowell Collier enterprise as advisors. Roland Gelatt in High Fidelity Magazine. In High Fidelity Magazine of September, , Roland Gelatt wrote on his Music Makers page about the sale of the Concert Hall label and added that Concert Hall's chief fall program centered on its new series of binaural tape recordings.
As several Concert Hall recordings appeared on the Musical Masterpiece Society's label, it is clear that not all tapes and plates were sold to Crowell-Collier. An example is the Mendelssohn-Pelleg recording. The sale may have prompted the editors of Schwann Record Catalog to stop listing the label, while the competitor The Longplayer continued listing Concert Hall in the editions of their catalogs.
High Fidelity Magazine of September, , page Reviews in Record Magazines. Early on a number of MMS disks was reviewed, at least in the Netherlands. The reviewer complained about the technical aspects of the recording bad microphone placement and "hard" sound , but in the end he praised Tortelier for his playing. When it was clear that the records could only be obtained through membership of the club, the MMS disks were no longer listed in record catalogs and magazines.
One exception is that they were listed in "Discopedie", but this was a publication by a Dutch reviewer, but not an official catalog issued on a regular basis. Dutch record monthly "Luister! It listed the records on offer accompanied by "reviews" written by the MMS sales department.
If the records would have been positively reviewed in magazines, it would have been mere advertising for MMS by urging the reader to subscribe to the club. That would give MMS an advantage over regular record labels. Every month a list of records was sent to each and every member of the club who could chose the recordings he or she was interested in.
Then these records were sent to the member's home and even then members were allowed to return some or even all of the records offered. Only if over a longer period of time no records had been bought, MMS would cancel a membership. The small magazine featured also a few world music titles.
Also jazz recordings were offered from time to time, issued on the Jazztone label. The Opera Society. Opera Society was another label issuing the existing opera catalog and adding new recordings. It is remarkable and amazing that so many standard repertory operas were performed in front of the MMS microphones. Of course, some performances - like the earlier Russian recordings - were remastered from tapes made available by other record companies or were obtained from radio broadcast corporations.
But most of the time they were performed by the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra renamed for the occasion "The Opera Society Orchestra". Conductor was Carl Bamberger.
Performances of famous artists and conductors, who generally recorded for quality labels, appeared on MMS. Either recordings were made by MMS, or they were bought from radio stations or from other labels.
At left an invoice from and the corresponding giro card of the Dutch "Postcheque- en Girodienst" for the payment of Dvorak's Symphony No. Sound Quality and Number of Pressings. They obviously mean that for every new batch of records a new plate will be used. The statement suggests that other manufacturers press more than records using the same plate.
There are of course companies that did so. Remington Records is an example. But the technicians and production managers of companies that produce quality records of classical music and jazz know that in principle no more than or records at the most should be pressed using the same plate. Quality control is the only way to determine if a plate can be used for another few hundred records. The rule is if more records are pressed, the matrix will get dull and the records will sound adequately.
It is possible to compensate for the loss of high frequencies and detail by applying equalization, by boosting the high frequency content and cut a disc with restricted dynamics resulting in a lean bass. In that way more music can be engraved per side and the high frequencies will be more prominent. Choosing a vinyl compound with a specific hardness can also give the suggestion of high fidelity when played on simple gramophones. The measures taken are audible in the final product.
Most certainly in the records of Musical Masterpiece Society with its Amplifier Tone Controls. Already in the early Concert Hall LP days, when the discs were listed in catalogs and were reviewed in magazines, the music critics had much to say about the quality of the recorded sound, the orchestras and the final product spinning on their turntables. Sometimes the quality of the work of the recording technician, the pressings and the quality of the playing of musicians were confounded.
But in general most knew well what they were writing about and were not always pleased with the Concert Hall discs. However in those days amplifiers had tone controls for bass and treble which often had to be used generously. An example. Indcox wrote: "Concert Hall's sound is rather undernourished, lacking in resonance, and the balance is not always ideal.
Walter Goehr conducted Suites Nos. There existed already a Westminster recording of Suite No. While the reviewer's description applied to the recordings of the Suites, the same quality could be encountered on several other Concert Hall discs with symphonic music and concertos. Chamber music recordings often favor a better sound.
I would put this in a best-buy category. Exit MMS. From on the Concert Hall label is no longer available in Europe. For the convenience of the subscribers and for promoting the sales, there where four shops where one could register for membership and where members could buy records. In Amsterdam of course, at the aforementioned address, in Rotterdam at Westblaak 26, in The Hague at Torenstraat , and in Utrecht at Zadelstraat 17, to be precise.
When in September the stereo record was introduced more record companies and record clubs found it too much of an investment to set up a catalog with stereo recordings on short notice. One of them was MMS. The label name will reappear much later, in the nineteen seventies, presenting the Synchro Stereo issues. At left the label of the German issue with Mendelssohn's Symphony No.
The original German liner notes say:. From September on High Fidelity Magazine started publishing reviews of pre-recorded reel to reel tapes. An example, in the issue of July , Symphony No.
I don't feel qualified to comment on solo singing in Polish, but while I don't care for the occasional close-to-full effect vibrato, I like Martineau's piano playing and the almost folksy melodies and arrangements. This music distinguishes itself by far from the rest of the music in the set. Translations to several languages of the lyrics to the 19 songs are included.
This is definitely the best complete edition of Chopin's music available, and perhaps the best collection of works available on disc by any classical composer. A lot of work has been put into the set's design, the sound, and certainly the amount and accuracy of interesting info given in the enclosed illustrated page hard-cover book of which a fifth is written in English and in the page booklets also illustrated included in each volume; practically everything you'll ever need to know about the composer and these recordings is included here along with all the music he wrote.
Well worthy of your time and money. This box set is a must for any lover of piano music. DG deserves praise for coming with an excellent set of records as well as presentation of the booklets.
It is breathtaking to have the opportunity to really know Chopin so well. Performers are first rate and speak for themselves, and for the price of 8 CD's you get the whole collection.
Yes, you can get in some cases better performances, but overall you can find a better compilation. Naxos has its own, and I am going to exchange it with a friend, problem will be to get mine back!

I have discovered Unknown Artist - Notre Concerto (Vinyl) very Unknown Artist - Notre Concerto (Vinyl) and sometimes costly experiences that the issues of greed, ego, ignorance, laziness, fear and common incompetence have been routine when other such lists and recommendations have been made public, especially concerning the subject of which pressings are most preferable.
