We are proud to issue a CD of Elgar recordings including the first ever release of Elgar’s April 1933 recording of his Elegy Op. 58 with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. In August 1933 Elgar recorded the work for a second time with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and it was this recording that was released shortly after Elgar’s death in 1934. In 2015 a test pressing of the earlier recording was discovered and is now being released for the first time. There is no doubt that this recording has more energy with a greater sense of ‘line’ and ebb-and-flow than the later performance and its neglect by Elgar and HMV is something of a mystery. In addition the CD contains a recording of the composer’s Sonatina played by its dedicatee, Elgar’s niece May Grafton. Privately recorded in 1958 at her home by the Elgar biographer, Jerrold Northrop Moore, this is an enchanting reminder of a close relationship that flourished particularly when Miss Grafton acted as Elgar’s secretary. The great violinist Albert Sammons performed the Elgar concerto with the composer over many years. However, they were each contracted to different record labels so in 1929 Sammons recorded the concerto complete with the New Queen’s Hall Orchestra conducted by Sir Henry Wood. Sixteen years earlier, in October 1916, Sammons and Wood made the first recording of the concerto in a version cut by Wood to fit on four sides of 78 rpm discs which Columbia released at the end of 1916. This recording has not been reproduced in any other form since its release in 1916, until now. Sammons’s masterly technique is also displayed in his final Elgar recording — Salut d’amour which concludes this CD but there are several other treasures on the same disc. SOMM is now filling in the gaps with recordings which have not been heard since their original release.

“Copiously detailed presentation and judicious transfers grace a fascinating issue that all experienced Elgarians are sure to appreciate.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2017

“Not essential listening, perhaps, but intriguing.” Sunday Times, 9th July 2017

The recordings included on this album are mainly taken from the collection of David Michell.

David was born in 1929 in Beckenham, South London, and began his passion for collecting 78s in his very early years. He was educated at Gresham School and went into a career in the railways. Retirement provided the opportunity to search for rare gramophone records with even more determination. By 2015, he had collected many thousands of discs. His records have been much sought after for reissue and Albion Records is deeply grateful to him for his support and encouragement.

David plays his beloved 78s on an enormous EMG horn gramophone which reproduces even the earliest of his discs with remarkable clarity and warmth.

Schubert: Winterreise D911

Schubert: Winterreise D911

Mono · Recorded In 1955


Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (baritone) & Gerald Moore (pianoforte)

"Music and poetry have a common domain, from which they draw inspiration and in which they operate: the landscape of the soul,” said Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. He embarked on Schubert’s Winterreise many times in his career, but this recording, made in 1955 with pianist Gerald Moore, is as exceptional for the youthful beauty of his singing as for the insight and immediacy of his interpretation.

Fischer-Dieskau’s affinity with Schubert is well known and the baritone is featured here in one of the composer’s most famous song cycles.

Following on from Regis’s resurrection of his early account of Die Schone Mullerin which received a Gramophone Editor’s Choice Award, the interpretation captured here is similarly the first he committed to disc (1955) displaying a beautifully youthful and radiant tone. He is accompanied by the incomparable Gerald Moore. Super budget price.

“An outstandingly beautiful performance … Kathleen Ferrier, under Bruno Walter’s inspired direction, sings these songs as, one feels, Mahler must have imagined them.” Gramophone Magazine

“Gluck only accounts for around a quarter of this legendary Kathleen Ferrier disc (though one of the greatest-ever recordings of Mahler's Kindertotenlieder is surely none too shoddy a bonus!), but for a snapshot of 'Klever Kaff's' Orfeo (recorded here under Charles Bruck and the orchestra and chorus of the Netherlands Opera) there's no better bargain.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, July 2014

Schubert: Die schöne Müllerin, D795

Schubert: Die schöne Müllerin, D795

The legendary 1951 recording


Fischer-Dieskau’s first recording of Die Schone Mullerin with Gerald Moore displays the singer in his youthful prime. He recorded the work several times again but without the same level of spontaneity which is the hallmark of this reading. A ‘must buy’ for lovers of both Fischer Dieskau and lieder singing. Super-budget price.

‘Fischer-Dieskau lives the part of the young miller intensely from the first note he sings to the last… He gives an impression of utter spontaneity, as if not a note had been written down, but as if everyone was being created there and then : a wonderful instance of art concealing art.’ Gramophone

“This legendary 1951 recording, one of Fischer-Dieskau's earliest and most spacious of this cycle, reveals painstaking verbal detail, and the unique creative rapport he enjoyed with Gerald Moore.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2012 ****
