EMI REFLEXE - THE SECOND SERIES 'Based on the research of the 1980s' - a 96 LP SURVEY OF MUSIC FROM THE MIDDLE AGES TO THE EARLY ROMANTIC PERIOD.
77 ISSUES COMPRISING 96 LPs GATEFOLD SLEEVES WITH EXTENSIVE NOTES & 4 BOX SETS WITH BOOKLETS

THIS SECOND REFLEXE COLLECTION IS NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE 1970s EMI GERMANY SERIES 'Stationen Europaischer Musik' COMPRISING 60 LPs, WHICH COVERED EUROPEAN MUSIC FROM THE MIDDLE AGES TO THE RENAISSANCE.
PROMPTED BY THE SUCCESS OF THE EARLIER GERMAN SURVEY, EMI LAUNCHED THE PRESENT SERIES, COMPRISING DIGITAL RECORDINGS** FROM THE 1980s, RANGING FROM DUFAY & GUILLAME DE MACHAUT TO BERLIOZ & SCHUMANN.
**except Bach: Musikalisches Opfer / Linde and Schutz: Musikalische Exequiem / Linde, both digitally remastered analogue recordings
The sleeves and artwork are of a very high standard throughout, with extensive multi lingual notes stapled neatly into the spine of each issue. The records are all German pressings and sound superb.
+++ The Reflexe 2 CD only collection will be listed on Kingsway Hall Classics shortly.
